A small town where everyone knows each other and treats you like family. I wouldn't have want to grow up anywhere else in the world. We have our problems, who doesn't? But it's the spirit and the fight of the citizens that make it unique.

I love living in Wellston, Ohio. I have traveled to many places and yes, there are far more better places out there than where I live. But in Wellston, there is never a stranger. When bad things happen in the community, we all pull together in prayer and are always there to support one another.
Very rural area, good for outdoors men but draw backs are not many choices for culture.
