Grifton Reviews

1 review
Grifton is a small town located in North Carolina. I grew up in Grifton my entire life. What I like most about this town is the small niche community. With everyone being familiar with one another, it's like we all are family. In addition, I would like to see some things change about the town of Grifton. Since there is an elementary and middle school downtown, there should be more things for the kids to do to occupy time after school. Grifton has a lot of vacant buildings and those buildings should be put to use for shopping, restaurants, entertainment, etc. Growing up in Grifton taught me how to be dependable and I appreciate that.
