    The only thing I like is how quiet it is. There are no eateries, sites to see, or entertaining venues to attend. Everything can be found in both towns that are on either side of Mount Olive, Magee & Collins.

    This is a very small town. Nothing is really here. I like the smaller town because of the people I know. Everyone is so nice and I get along with everyone. We are like a happy family and housing is great.
