In my opinion Wellsville Kansas is a great place to live. Wellsville is a very small town which i love. There is a "city" part of Wellsville then the rest is country. I lived in the country side of Wellsville and it was so beautiful! Open land, gravel roads, everybody knows everybody here! There is not a nightlife here so its great if you have a family or want to get away from the city!

Wellsville, KS is a wonderful small town. We have a great community. It's easy to get around, especially as a child. We have low crime rates, there is a familiar face wherever you go, and are very involved with our school system. Most importantly, in times of need this community comes together! Whenever one of us is in need we all pitch in to help out. I wouldn't have wanted to grow up anywhere else.
I did not chose to live here, my parents did. Theres not much to do but the people are mainly nice, they just gossip a lot. It sucks driving long distances to go to the store or mall. The people in control of the town refuse to let it grow and get new businesses
