Kirksville is an amazing town to live in. Most people are easy to get along with and are willing to help others. I have lived here my whole life and I have loved living here. There are wonderful people living here, and I would gladly recommend for people to live here.

The area that I live in has many of the average American corporations residing in it, such as Wal-Mart, Hy-Vee, Pizza Hut, McDonald's, Home Depot, etc. And all of these places always have everything I'm looking for, and from multiple visits to various stores, I have a pretty good idea of where to go to get what I want.

Small, mid-west college community. Is a good play for kids to grow up in. See the town slowly growing throughout the future.
