This town is very farmer ran, you could say. The High School is no more they get sent to the town up the road. If you try to open a new business in this town you will get ran out of business by the one bar owner in this town. She will not let any other business come into town. This is a dying town and the somebodies of this town are to blame for it. They get there snobby noises involved and think they know what is best for the town and they are it in to the ground. The town has one bar/restaurant, a movie theater, popcorn plant, two tractor dealers, and one ag business. If you aren't a farmer you are going to have to drive some where to work and the closest towns with jobs are 20+ miles away.

People either stay for a short time or they stay for most of their life. Hamburg is very pet/family friendly, I have a couple pets of my own.
There are very few run down houses and the houses that are run down are sometimes torn down or fixed up.
