Maxwell Reviews

1 review
It is a very small community. There is only two gas stations / quick stops but no store. There is however a small burger joint of sorts. In general the people are friendly and your kids are guaranteed to have plenty of one-on-one with teachers in the school. There isn't much crime for obvious reasons but you don't have many secrets or privacy either.
