Standard rural town. Can sometimes be boring due to a lack of nightlife. Schools in the area are affordable and give a fair education.

This area has significantly changed and decreased in value since moving here.
There aren't many abandoned houses and there's usually quite an abundance of lawn space for each property. People are close enough to be neighborly, but the houses aren't on top of each other.
