Thorndale Reviews

1 review
Wonderful, small town feel. Great place to be raised. Thorndale is a town full of historical findings. It’s a town that continues to hold onto its roots and small town attributes. Everyone knows everybody. People are friendly but also recognize when dangers rides through. Children don’t grow up fast in Thorndale. They’re able play in rainfall ditches, ride their pikes across the pond, and participate in local sports without the need to “try out”. We may not have a lot to offer as far as shopping or restaurants go. But we have plenty of fields that need to plowed, weekly sporting events that fill stadium, and many wonderful people worth bumping into.
