Overall, Hennessey is a great place to live, whether you are a college student, family with young kids, or someone looking for a place to retire. Hennessey has grown quite rapidly in the last decade and has expanded with many different housing options, including retirement and assisted living communities and apartments geared toward students. Hennessey public schools consistently earn high letter grades on the federal rating scale, and many families move to Hennessey just for the educational opportunities. The dining and entertainment options here have expanded greatly, offering both top dollar and more affordable picks for residents. Hennessey also has several well-maintained parks, hiking trails, and a dog park that I frequent often and personally love.

Hennessey is just like any small town, you get to know everyone. It has a great school and community and everyone pretty much gets along. We just got a new splash pad for little ones and a new little park, and everyone loves it.
The cops here are very helpful and friendly
