Malcolm Reviews

3 reviews
I have lived in Malcolm for all 17 years of my life. My parents have lived here for more than 25 years. We love the small town feel Malcolm provides. The community is very supportive and involved with our school here. Our school is well supported by our community from them cheering on our teams to helping in our many fundraisers for charities. Malcolm has a wonderful locally owned restaurant. The food is incredible and well known across the state. The name of the restaurant is Lippy´s Barbecue. Another popular place in Malcolm is our parks. We have a total of three parks, which provide families an opportunity to get some fresh air together. One thing I would change about my town would be the lack of all-community events. I don´t know many of the people in the town to be honest. It would be cool if Malcolm was able to connect more as a community and serve others within.

I love the small town experience with the benefits of a large city only 15 miles away. The school provides a great education and everything is the perfect size, the only thing missing is a in town gas station.
There is a very very low crime rate since it is a small neighborly community.
