We have a great town here. There is a lot of history behind the town, one being Cumston Hall. We are a very little town, making it easy for everyone to know each other. Also, unlike nearby towns we don't have any big supermarkets or fast food places so we don't have a huge amount of traffic going through our town. Although, sometimes because of the fact we look like a ghost town.

Overall the staff and course load at the schools were good. Although there is an issue with male teachers there in the past. The countryside is beautiful and not overpopulated at all. There are a quite a few convenient stores in town, north, and south Monmouth.
Monmouth is a small town, but it is full of people that make the small town worth it. I go to a school where, a majority of the time, people are friends and get along. I am planning on going out of state for college but I know that Monmouth will always have a place in my heart for it has shaped me into the woman I am today.
