Montrose Reviews

I have lived in Montrose for about 15 years. It is a nice, safe, quiet little town. A great place to live and raise a family. All my neighbors are very close, as I grew up playing with the kids across the street. I loved my elementary, middle, and high school. The teachers were wonderful and I would love to teach in this area myself. While there aren't many stores or businesses itself in Montrose, they are not a far drive away.

Business's are all family based, not fair to all
