The town of Augusta is a close knit community that bonds over Friday night football and good gossip of what happened to who. Everyone knows everybody in this town and do not enjoy outsiders too much. The people are very diverse and you never know what to expect. Small town scandal spreads fast and good news doesn't seem to be celebrated. This town is stuck in their old ways and nothing has changed here in years, except for the roads which are always under construction.

I have heard Augusta, Kansas, as a place you come from, not a place you go to. I will say that it's a good place to raise a family, just don't expect too many clubs in the area. I would classify Augusta as a classic mid-western small town.
