I've lived here all of my life. This community is so supported for the kids in school sports, clubs, and activities. The people are absolutely friendly. This is also the type of town where everyone knows everybody.

Norton has a lot of places to dine. there is also a lot of job opportunities as well. This town is small, but very supportive of the high school athletes. They hold pep rallies every time one sports team makes it to state.
