Strafford Reviews

3 reviews
I lived in this town for eight years. The schools are very nice, including the people and teachers. It is easy to fit right in with everyone because they take everyone the way that they are. It is a very small town where you can feel pretty safe. The food places are limited, and they honestly are not that great.

Strafford is a small town just north of Springfield. Like most small towns, there is not much to do, but since it is so close to Springfield, the drive is not bad. Strafford Schools are excellent and most people are friendly.
Nice small town, would be better if it had a gym and there wasn't so many semi trucks, but overall good place to live.
