There is a lot to say about Herculaneum, but one thing I'd have to say is that I would never want to be anywhere else. In the town, it gives a sense of peace but also it keeps you on your toes. Among the town is the high school where I attend. The staff are very nice and will help anyone at any time, the students are also a huge help for the school and the community with their ideas and trying to make the town of Herculaneum a place where everyone knows the name. It is family friendly, and the diversity among people is good as well.

I rather enjoy living in Jefferson County, where there is a lot less traffic and violent crime. I used to live in Lemay and I just generally did not like the city life.

Herculaneum is a small quiet town where the neighbors are kind and where most people mind their business. Definitely a town where you can raise your kids at a fantastic school Dunklin R-V.
Our small town is very big in traditions and has been around for a long time. Our city has changed from being an industrial city but has always remained a hometown. Herculaneum is somewhere I can be proud to call my home.
