It's a slow moving town, I feel like it needs more activities for the children. I would love to see more live shows here such as open Mic night, such as poetry reading, live musical talent shows my church use to do these things the community didn't really participate but people from other states and surrounding counties did come out and showed mad love! It would be nice to have community day where all races could attend and feel comfortable Around one another! After all it is some very intelligent people In the town,their just not on one accord! I do believe that Prayer changes everything though! I will continue to strive in peace!

Louisa is a great, family friendly rural community. Lots of open space and beautiful farm land. I love the friendly residents, small business and small community feel. Their public safety employees are helpful and polite.
Louisa is what seems like a small town, but it can be very bustling and busy when it needs to be. Whether its the Annual Arts Festival or the Winter Parade, Louisa is very family-friendly and offers places to hang out and a very diverse shopping community.
