Postville Reviews

1 review
As a small, Iowa town, Postville provided us with a safe, family-friendly place to grow up. As we have grown older, we see that Postville lacks the opportunities to make a decent living. Postville is town that lacks amenities and a nightlife. For families and the elderly, Postville is the perfect, quiet town. For anyone looking to move forward, Postville is a place to avoid.
