While Pewee Valley is a quaint town, the train runs right thru it several times a day thanks to the Ford Truck plant just a few miles down the road. While the city of Pewee has an ordinance that doesn't allow the trains to blow their whistle while actually in Pewee, you can still hear them coming & going. Also, when there's a bad wreck on Interstate 71, cars usually deter through Pewee to get back on the interstate just outside of the city limits. This makes for a lot of traffic on a small, 2 lane state road.

I like the feeling of a small town because most people know someone in the area. Everything you need is in this town or the town next door. However, everyone that is born here tends to stay here so it would be nice to have new people more often.
I really enjoy the area I live in because of the small neighborhoods. I like being out away from the city and enjoying the smaller parts of town. The neighbors around all know each other and makes it feel like a sense of community. I really enjoy summer days and walking around the area.
