Excellent Schools / Quiet Neighborhoods / Low Cost of Living
This community offers the simplicity of small-town life and some of the Country's most rural and scenic landscapes. Our schools continually receive high marks year after year and have some of the lowest student-to-teacher ratios in the
country. Despite a smaller population, this area boasts a hospital, airport, nursing home, historic cinema, fitness center, recreational activities, and annual state fairs and festivals, and location makes day trips into Canada easy as well.
Where else can you get all this and have the beautiful scenery and outdoor activities galore with premium hunting and fishing?
