Working in Harvard
Harvard is lovely and historical; the people are friendly. Sports programs are offered through the town, and historically important buildings are preserved. The library is gorgeous.
The pros are that it’s really small however the cons are also that it’s really small so while you will know everyone and be able to walk to many places, there also isn’t much to do around town and there’s no such thing as just dropping by the store to get something.
It is a close-knit community, but it is very expensive to live in. There isn't too much night activity and shopping options are very limited. The school system is very good and the community is a big benefit.
