    A small town in Texas is one of the best experiences one could ever have. The school there is exceptional, and the experiences in the town are extremely personal. Everybody is friendly, and there is always new people moving here. One would never have any issues of safety, and would have nothing but good things to state.

    We are a small town of 323 people. Most of our children for our school are transfers. We have one restaurant that is owned by a local family. The laundromat which is owned by one of the first families in New Home. The one shop we do have is a store for hone decor and a few item's of other sorts. We have a welding/store as well. It is locally owned as too. Most of the folks here gather for coffee out there. Especially the farmers. We have 3 churches to practice your faith. If you love small town living with great neighbors than you will love New Home, Tx
    Everyone knows everyone. So anyone out of the ordinary WILL stand out like a sore thumb.
