I love the hometown settings. The high school football team brings the community together on Friday nights. The town is growing in development, however more industries are needed, as well as community recreation venues. The crime rate is low, and the religious community is strong. After I retire I would love to reside on Old Waverley Golf course,which is a vital asset to the community.West Point is a good place to call home.

I believe that West Point is a great retirement town. The town is a very small peaceful place to live. You get to meet a lot of different people. Majority of the residents you encounter is very warm and welcoming. Although the town is small, there are many new business that has been and is being brought to
West Point. The town is slowly expanding, but it is an expansion that is much needed. It's also a great place to raise your kids. There are a few parks that has been built just for kids.
Although I was skeptical about moving here, I love my neighborhood! The neighbors are friendly and tend to their own business, which could be good and bad in certain instances. It is generally quiet where I live. If I had to choose to live here again, I would. I couldn't think of a better environment to live!
