Pottsville Reviews

Pottsville is a drive through town. By the time people realize that they've been in Pottsville they are already out of the small area. The neighbors are friendly, and it's a nice place for people who want to live a simple-town life. There is one park that's situated by the fire station, the police station, the town museum, and the elementary school. Pottsville is nothing of major interest. The bridge that was built over Pottsville sees more action than the entire town as a whole. Everyone seems to know everyone else, and it's the type of place that would be the nicest to get a flat tire.

I love the small setting in Pottsville. The school is amazing! It's not too small, not too big. There is plenty of land if you want to live in a country setting and there are housing additions coming if you like a neighborhood setting. While there aren't many businesses in Pottsville, it is about five minutes away from Russellville, which has numerous places to eat and shop.
The small quaint little to community is nothing but positive vibes and warm friendly and inviting people. This place is entendres for family driven people and is ideal for raising a family
