I love that Kentland is a small, quiet town. It’s my hometown and always will be. Every business in town has employees that know their customers by name and, many times, by order. Its citizens band together in times of hardship and celebrate the efforts of those who work to make it better. The people of Kentland are generous and kind, giving to those in need without requiring recognition for doing so. The town is peaceful and the cicadas sing to the rustle of the leaves blowing in the trees.

Kentland is a very family friendly town. Country roads are great for taking long car rides. There are parks available that are perfect to take a walk to or take siblings/children to let them play. It is a very safe town and there is a good amount of job opportunities. In any of the stores, gas stations, etc... the staff is always friendly.
I love living in Kentland because it is a small community with stores provided for every day living, along with two major highways going through. I know over 50% of the residents since I have lived here for more than 17 years. It is very family-friendly and we hardly ever have any kind of danger.
