I love the neighborhood and have great neighbors! I feel safe enough to leave packages on the porch but not too long. The town is small but has enough to survive on and Walmart is only 15 minutes away. I do however wish that they offered more jobs in the area, but that is almost impossible with how small they are, which I understand.

I absolutely love Wilmore. This town is a small and tight knit community. Everyone knows each other and is willing to help the town out in any way. Holiday festivities are so much fun. All the town shops are opened and giving out treats. Music, tree lighting, parades, and trick-or-treating all take place throughout the year. Asbury University is a college in Wilmore. They are a small private Christian school and known for there seminary. Many missionary students come to Asbury to focus on practice of religion. This town makes you feel involved and supported. Wilmore is a great city to live and raise a family.
Wilmore is a beautiful town, filled with kind, God-fearing people. The town slogan is love more, serve more, Wilmore. This town reminds me a little of Mayberry.
