It has the peace and quiet you get from living in the country along with beautiful mountains. Its conveniently located inbetween two cities (15 minutes to either one). Nice community and friendly people!

In Shawsville it has been very small and closed off from other towns, but recently it has gained more attention. There is nothing I would like to change about Shawsville.
Personally I grew up in Shawsville and what I like is how quiet it is here. Not a city type of area more of a rural area. Somethings I would improve would probably be to add more job opportunities, and more things for kids and people to do around here.
