I like that my town is small. We have our own Facebook page and keep everybody updated. And when things happen everyone is there for one another.

The town is very old and it shows, but the schools are small and I personally had a good learning experience growing up. We had lots of fun and the local community was deeply involved in the schools. Because how old the town is some of the buildings are old and failing and there isn't a lot of sidewalks. Overall yes its an old small town and there is room for improvement but I loved my childhood there and am very happy with who it has shaped me to be today.
Since this place is so small we simply don't have a lot of businesses.
