Palmer Reviews

1 review
This village is a great place to live. There are new housing options that have been built in the last 2 years. Many opportunities for owning businesses, and great community support. There are many churches to choose from and the commute to larger communities is short. I love living in this town and encourage those who would like a change of pace to look at Palmer.
