Western Prong Township Reviews

1 review
Living in a small town has its advantages. EX: Really having a "personal banker" that you can call on the phone and get help. Not a lot of traffic to deal with, knowing almost everyone in town. At the same time our county is very rural. We are the unhealthiest county in the state, there are no jobs available, no public transportation. I would choose to live here just because its where I was raised, however, I have never really lived anywhere else to compare it to.
