If not for the cloudy, frequently unpleasant weather, Jackson Township was a slice of suburban heaven.
The amenities there were all great.
I miss it.
Fantastic, schools, library, parks, good shopping, reastaurants.
Excellent police and fire and emergency .
Perfect for families, young proffesionals or retirees.
Lots of activities, good medical care and easy access to Greater Cleveland. Not all that far from Columbus and very close to Ohio Amish country.
Just a great place to live.

My overall experience would be amazing. I live on the country side of my town. Yes, I did not have any children to play with, but I did have a farm. My parents gave me a my first horse when I was a young girl. So, they taught me life lessons about responsibilities. If I could redo where I live again I would totally live in the country again. It made me who I am today. I would recommend living in the country for everyone. It is an amazing experience. What I see for my area for the future is disaster. The only reason why I would say that is because the country side is slowly going away. More land is being sold for neighborhoods. So, many people will not get to experience the amazingness of living in the country and having space to do whatever you want.
This is a great place to grow up. Small town feel but close to cities too. Jackson High School is the best ever! Go Bears!
