Madison Township Reviews

2 reviews
This area is a safe place to live. It is a good place to have a family. I feel like I had a wonderful childhood growing up here, as I played outside often and enjoyed the simple pleasures of life. I like seeing people I recognize when going out and about. Downfalls include that there aren't many places to go in this town. There is about a 20 minute drive to the closest town that has various dining options, grocery store, and Walmart.

I think the town is mostly safe - the only crime I hear about is people getting arrested for drugs.
