The neighborhood,I live in, is a nice country setting, it is quiet. The neighbors all stay to themselves, but if you need something they are there. It's relaxing to watch the squirrels play among the trees.

I've lived in the Kiln for 4 years now and it's a nice little town to live in. Currently getting a Ward's, still in process.
The Kiln is a small town but it is a good area to raise a family. Its a lot of open countryside and it has a really great school district. The only changes I would like to see around here is to keep our local businesses owned by the locals instead of selling out.
