Potosi Reviews

This is on the outskirts of Abilene. It has a volunteer fire department. It's pretty quiet, middle to upper class neighborhoods. There's also some ranches scattered around. Some business development has rumored to build into it, but we haven't seen any in the decade we've lived here. Great school district!
