My whole 19 years I have lived in Stanton, it is such a wonderful town to live in. Everyone is friendly simply because we all know each other. We continue to grow as a community and help one another out. Stanton is a really great place to live and I would recommend anyone to move here.

I like the small community because everyone knows everyone. All I have met in this small town is kind and friendly people. The only thing i would like to see is more job opportunity for high school students. It is hard to find a job around town while going to school. Therefore many people have to get a job in a near by town.
Stanton is a great town. The oilfield is booming, so it is also crazy. A town of 3000 residents and a few old soreheads. Limited Food, unlimited dirt.
