Lowden Reviews

1 review
Lowden is your average small Midwestern town. It has its own library, bank, bar, post office and grocery store (with high price tags). There is even a country club and golf course. The town has more higher quality living with a few poorer sections here and there. The countryside is relatively quiet, with mainly corn and bean fields surrounding houses. Farmers don't rotate crops and rely heavily on pesticide usage.
