Iuka Reviews

I love the little town of Iuka. It is quiet and everybody knows everybody and everyone lends a helping hand. There is a gas station, two restaurants, a dollar general and a little ice cream shop. There isn't much opportunity in the way of a career, but they have an excellent school system!
