Hatfield Reviews

1 review
Hatfield is a small farming community comprised of approximately 3000 residents. It takes pride in its beautiful landscape, community activities like the annual Memorial Day Parade and town-wide outdoor candle lighting before Christmas. One can expect to go to school with the same classmates from kindergarten through senior year in high school, with a class size of no more than 30 students. It is a safe place to raise children, but it can also feel too cloistered. It is better to explore the world outside of the its radius to get an idea about multiculturalism and other ethnic backgrounds. Hatfield gives someone strong roots so that one can become independent and still know where one came from.
