Small quiet town where everyone knows everybody. Town may lack many of the larger wants of a larger town, but since its so close close to Norfolk that we can easily find what you can't here in town.

its a good town quaint and quiet the local schools are great for the area. the shopping is basic but the local farmers market is a great place to meet and make connections. plainview is not far from the larger cities. the community keeps to its self mostly but will come together for fun.
