Lenox Reviews

Great community to raise a family! Lenox is a small town in southwest Iowa. I have lived in this community all my life and love it. Lenox is a town where you know most of your neighbors, so most of the community. You don't have to worry about sending your kids to the local pool in the park or downtown to get ice cream. It's a very safe community. There are local businesses and grocery stores, plus we have a Casey's, so gas and good pizza are always close by. There are many thriving companies bringing in jobs and our school is constantly growing. Lenox is the type of community young people are returning to after college to raise their families and start businesses. Lenox definitely has that hometown feel. I would highly recommend anyone to keep Lenox in mind if you are moving to the area or simply passing through.
