South Lancaster Reviews

1 review
It's a great small town! Very small community that feels like it's in the past. My only concern is that the roads aren't cleaned very well during a snow storm. Schools are okay, I had opted to go to Minuteman High School; which is the trade school the town offers, an hour away. If anyone prefers to live in a town that is stuck in the past and is all back roads, then this is the town for you.
