Swartzville Reviews

3 reviews
This is a great place to live. For the most part, the people here are very nice and they have good values compared to people in a lot of places. There are many things to do and see in the area, as it draws tourists because of the vast countryside and the many Amish in the area, as well as countless antique shops. It wouldn't be considered an extremely wealthy area, but the living conditions and overall quality of life is very good. I am glad that I live here.

Presence of community involvement and focus to improve area we live in
I love living here but I don't think that I would live here forever. It just is in a weird place where you have to drive everywhere in order to get to something fun to do. I just wish that I lived in an area where I could walk to places and not have to waste gas to drive places.
