Housing here has its good side and bad side. Some houses look well-maintained and the owners are proud of their property but other houses look unkept and abandoned, which some houses have been abandoned. A lot of the properties here have nice looking lawns though.

There is little to no crime at all in the area and I think everyone here feels completely safe. With that being said there is no need for a neighborhood watch organization, plus we are so small of a town that it just seems pointless. The police are friendly and you can see them around often, same with paramedics.
There are not many places where you can go and hang out and relax, like a beach. We have plenty of woods and open areas. LOTS and LOTS of corn and soybean fields surrounding. It defintely fits the meaning of "small town."
