Onsted has small town charm and safety. Good local services, good property values and local schools without the busy of the bigger towns. Community support for local businesses and friendly neighbors. In an area with an assortment of lakes.

I would love to see more volunteers and community events! I believe the one trait that Onsted lacks, is the enthusiasm. There isn’t much to do around town and it almost seems dead at times, unfortunately.
Onsted itself is a relatively pleasant town. Many of the residents are 50+ years of age, while most students live within a 20-mile radius of the town. The school is one of the largest problems, funds are used wastefully, many books are several years old, the teaching staff is continuously shrinking, many rooms appear old and damaged, the administration rarely steps in to aid students that are being bullied, and all extracurricular activities, save athletics, are under-funded and dismissed. The town itself has a grocery store, hardware store, pizza joint, an American Legion, a salon, and a few other smaller businesses.
