It's steeped in history

Head out your back door to a Village set back in time. Where your neighbors are your friends and crime is non-existant. Where every street is lined with a sidewalk. The playground is around the corner. It's five minutes to walk to the Village Square. Grab your mail, hit the bank, walk home. This type of life isn't offered everywhere. There's so much to do and see, so many people to interact with, you'll find yourself ditching the TV, and heading out.

It's special here. Come see.
