South Mountain is a very close knit community. Everything and anything is almost always here with a supportive community to help you find what you need. Despite struggles and issues present in the community, members rise above to ensure success from everyone.
All of the people are very friendly and not all but just some give welcoming presents for joining the neighborhood. We usually go there for vacation on Christmas
