This small town is a wonderful place to live. Hardwick gives many opportunities. With multiple farms, passing through the town is a very pretty trip! The Hardwick fair is another great attraction. With multiple games and contests, the fair is fun for all ages!

Its a small town but there is plenty of opportunity to explore. It is very rural but there is a nice mix of modern technology so you aren't out of touch with the world.
