Lewiston is a very tight knit community, a small town where people are very friendly and happy to help one another out and support each other. There are beautiful shops and restaurants, fun activities and festivals available for all ages, and gorgeous scenery.
Lewiston is a very quiet and historic town where everyone is so kind to each other. You see friends when you're out doing errands or even walking around town to take in the beauty of the village. Around every corner is a new sight to see, and every house has it's own unique story behind it with it's own quirks to differentiate it from any other house in the area.
