It is very small without many opportunities for growth, but there are a plethora of great church communities to be a part of. Tri-County is an excellent school corporation and is easily the best in surrounding areas when it comes to test scores and opportunities.

There are not a lot of choices when it comes to trying to buy a house in this area. Part of that being because once people move here, they tend to stay. However, there are some vacant areas. These areas are mostly old buildings that the owner has neglected. They can tend to be an eyesore but they residents tend to overlook them because there are plenty of beautiful areas.
The atmosphere of Wolcott is very friendly. I did not know before I moved here that I would enjoy it so much. Overall, it's a hidden gem in Indiana.
