I love this area. I would definitely consider moving back here after I finish school. It's quaint and quiet, but everyone is beyond friendly and personable.

I love Howe because it is a small town and everybody comes together when it is needed. Everyone is very friendly and caring. The schools are the best I've seen great staff great environment. Howe is a great community to be a part of.
