Houston Missouri is a small town and nothing like Houston Texas. But my connections to this town have made me realise and come to notice all the great qualities. I went to school here and very much enjoyed this small town. I live out passed houston but this is the town i go to buy groceries and meet friends. It's very homey and everyone knows everyone. This small town is more than just any other small town. The community as a whole is quiet and friendly and perfect for starting a family. I have spent 7 years in Houston and have grown to love it very much.

Houston has lots of businesses, but not many jobs so many people has to go out of town for jobs. The safety isn't great. The people aren't very great either.
I like the fack that it's a very small tight nitch community and people here are very friendly. I think that having more of a night life would be great
