Jane Lew Reviews

Small town. Close-nit feel. Minuscule population. Good elementary school. Kind of trashy. People clean up every so often, but still mostly run down. Trying to better itself. People in the community pull together. Especially during hardships. Mostly kind hearted people. Overall, decent, but if I had a kid, wouldn't raise them there.

I have lived in Jane Lew for the last 22 years. Its a nice little town but not much to do at all. The park is really nice for kids and the outdoor fitness area is great. Work in Jane Lew is mostly oilfield work. All around Jane Lew is a decent little town to call home.
I really like Jane Lews small town feeling everyone looks out for each other and it is a great little community. The one thing I would change is making more places available to rent.
