I enjoyed going to high school here for three years. Most everyone I met was super friendly and outgoing. Since this is a smaller town there isn't as much to do in this town as I would like but it has been fun. There are quite a few places to eat but choices are definitely limited compared to bigger towns.

Hometown pride. Cleanliness of streets. Walmart is close to the highway. High school sports brings to community together.
Mountain Grove is a big, happy family.
