    Featured Review: Current Resident says I have been all over the world, but I have never found the same feeling of being Bargersville. There is a certain peace and down-home feel mixed in with humble pursuit of excellence.

It is more about the collective here than the individual. Snobbiness is not accepted.The weakest spot is food and entertainment, but there are many new places opening up and the nearby destinations are countless (Bloomington, Nashville Indiana, Indianapolis, Franklin). The steady....
