It's a small farming community. The schools are located on the same street very convenient. Sports are very big in our town,there was a lot of team support. The Marching band rated very high on the state level as did the the JV girls soft ball team. You had to go to a nearby Jackson for theaters or a nice dinner with friends and family. It is a country town not much to do but very nice people and long time residents. Every one knows everyone.
It is a great small town. The school system has a lot of great teachers. Overall there isn't much nightlife, but the surrounding areas have that for you.
