People are kind, helpful, and accepting. The town is heavenly. It is quiet, laid back, and great town for watching the night sky. Not too dark, yet dark enough to see a beautiful spaying of the night sky. Since it is a small town you must commute to a larger city for employment.

I love Kress so much. It is a small town and that is what makes it so great. Everyone knows everyone. People are friendly and they will help you with about anything. The community has each others' back. There is nothing much I would change about the town. It is perfect how it is. All the time I have spent there have great memories.
