I have lived in this neighborhood all my life (20 years) and it is getting worse. When I was younger tgis neighborhood was decient, now some of the people that have lived in this neighborhood in the past has either past away or moved somewhere else. Some of the people that have moved in these houses are annoying and strange. If I had the say so for where we where living, I would have lived in the country.

Not a very up to date town. Many run-down looking buildings on the main street, but the high school is large and looks fairly good condition. No sense of town pride. A lot of parades, though.

In the past 10 years almost every business has closed, the crime is getting worse, and it is becoming an unsafe neighborhood. I'd never move back here and if I could do it all over again I would not have moved here.
