I love the feeling of this small town downtown. Nice shops along Main street with varied shopping. So lucky to live here and shop small businesses.

Fun to walk around the historic district. Several choices of places to eat. Food was good and well priced. Plenty of parking in lots nearby. Easy to get to from Highway 71.
