Wellsburg Reviews

3 reviews
I love the small town living. It's quiet, safe, and people are very kind. It's a town that acts like just a huge family. We have a great school system, library, and overall wonderful town. There are only a couple things I'd like to see change in. One would be diversity. We don't have much diversity at all. The other thing is we have a gas station where you can get necessities but we have no grocery store. I'd like to see even a small grocery store, but we are within a 25-35 minute drive to any of the bigger cities like Cedar Falls/Waterloo, Iowa Falls, and Marshalltown. Overall, I love our small town that we call home.

I'm retired military so I have lived many many places. I love this town and surrounding communities because it's quiet, everybody is so friendly, and everyone knows everybody. It's very quaint.
We don't have town police, just sheriff's for the county but we have 3 that live in our small town so they are very good and are around a lot.
