Wacousta Reviews

2 reviews
My family moved here when I was seven or eight years old, so it is what I remember and am used to. most of the people try to keep to themselves, but are extremely friendly when you are around them. Being that it is a small rural town, it experiences very little change, giving a pleasant traditional feel to the living situation. I know I'm biased because it's what I've known for most of my life, but I definitely would not oppose living this way.

We rarely see police in my area, but we don't need to. I've never heard of any crimes in the area, and other than a couple of rude twelve year olds, there are no real groups of people to worry about here.
