Highgate springs is an amazing area to live in. 65% are home owners. If you love the outdoors, wildlife and greenery it’s for you. It’s truly a breath of fresh air and I can see Canada from my house and New York is 25 mins the Opposite way. The neighbors are out of sight but close enough if you need or want them. It’s family friendly and folks look out for each other. We have a small town center but each town over gets bigger and an extra 15 min apart.

Traditional small town. Not much going on, not much initiative or desire for modernization. Agriculture is large part of local economy.
We don't get any sort of tropical storms, we just get a lot of snow. You have to be prepared for almost any sort of weather all the time.
