It's a slow paced friendly atmosphere. Improvements have been slow but there are walking and riding trails to entice the community to get out and enjoy the fresh outdoors. The fasad of homes are being improved as well. This town is not very industrial friendly. It values it's mom and pop shops. Many programs are available to help those in need.
Friendly, family oriented and pet friendly.
