Villisca Reviews

1 review
The main street area buildings are crumbling. The town administrators are rabidly against any new businesses coming in town for fear of bringing outsiders and daring to make the town grow. The town infrastructure is basic at best and is clearly run by individuals that barely understand the laws and rules they must follow. A city attorney is desperately needed. The housing values are pathetic. The town is absolutely gorgeous in all fairness. It is quiet and safe. It is sad that the good citizens are over ruled by the bad. It has an amazing history. Not referring to the horrendous ax murders, but the stories of all the lives that called this little town home. There are many that are trying to make others aware of Villisca's beauty. But instead sadly most of America only sees the haunted attraction that makes profit from the senseless deaths of children and two adults.
