Hiram is a great little town with a great college. There's a donut shop and pizza, place for off campus eating but that's about it. However, the neighboring towns of Garrettsville and Mantua have many other options that are only about 10 minutes away. Hiram is a safe, close-knit community with many friendly people and a calm atmosphere.

I've lived in Hiram all my life and it's such a quaint place. Very quiet and friendly. We have a 4th of July parade every year and everyone knows everyone. That can be a little stifling sometimes, but it's great for families and you always know people will have your back if you need it. For instance, once my family's car went off the road and into a ditch due to ice. Four different cars full of people we knew stopped and offered help.
Hiram is full of history, both civic and religious. They have Disciples of Christ, Mormon history with Johnson Farm. President James Garfield lived there and was President of Hiram College. It is surrounded by some of the greatest natural beauty in Midwest. It is one of Ohio’s diamonds.
