After living here 5 years, the tiny town grows on you. However, moving here from Florida, I'll never get used to how country/redneck people can be around here! The schools are fantastic though, I graduated from Walnut Grove High in 2015, and I loved it there!

I see that this place that I'm am living in is getting bigger and bigger by the minute. They keep building new building and apartments every where. Compared to parts of the country it's very fair to say that it's not the worst place to live in.
Mainly its fast food joints that are hiring, but nothing to serious looking for full time employment.
