We moved here this year, and it was the best decision. We did the odd decision of moving away from Granger, Indiana, and it was a great decision. The small town feel and the atmosphere is perfect for anyone moving away from the bright lights of the city. The school, NorthWood, is the most conservative, christian school you'll ever attend.

I love the small town feeling of Nappanee, Indiana. It has came along way as it is improving itself little by little. The town has great attractions, for example, Amish Acres.
Honestly, I do not think I would change anything about the town. It is a great country family setting, making it a perfect place to grow up!
Love the small town feel and slow pace Nappanee has! It's a family friendly town, full of great people!
