Thomaston Reviews

1 review
Thomaston is a small town that at first glance seems rather unimpressive. There are not many restaurants and stores, and Main street has little to offer compared to some neighboring towns. However, the people are what makes this town a true gem. The people found in Thomaston are kind, hard-working, and helpful.
