    Cross Plains normally does not have any crime. The one thing that I would prefer is to have police forces in Cross Plains. With how small the place is they do not have their own police force. So if someone needs help they have to come from Versailles or anywhere close. But still, police react fast when they are needed.

    Housing has never been a problem! Cost is not expensive. The houses are rented pretty quick.

    Cross Plains is beautiful. It is a small town so everyone knows each other. Which means that everyone is there for each other if someone needs help. The view of Cross Plains is also beautiful as you can see farm land all around.
