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.
The community is great. Everyone is so helpful to one another.
