We are transplants from the Philadelphia area. We were attracted to the rural setting, beautiful countryside, and large home plots. While others have noted the private/independent disposition of our residents (many services like trash removal, septic/water are the responsibility of homeowners), there is also a very strong community feel as well (which should not be excluded). Borrowing a few eggs, getting advice on contractor services, etc. are more than common as neighbors are very happy to offer assistance whenever possible. We love it here!!! Our children also attend the local public schools and have had tremendous success. The number of AP, Honors, and dual-enrollment classes offered is impressive.

I lived in New Jersey for 18 years, this is where I grew up, I still consider New Jersey my home. Moving to Pennsylvania brought my family closer to the immediate family; it is always nice to be closer to the family. My heart still lies in New Jersey, so many memories and so many friends. I soon will be leaving for college and started my life in New York, more change to my life. Overall, I can't complain because you only get one life so I am going to live it to the fullest not matter where it takese me.
Friendly neighbors, great upkeep of neighborhood. Not much interaction between everyone. Most residents have lived here for a very long time. Pets are a common sight.
