Advantages of Small-Town Life, Michigan

Alpena, Michigan

Story Narrative:

What does living in a small town teach you?

"Living in a small town has great advantages. You get to know most all of the people. They all know you. There's a lot of interaction between all of the people. In some cases, especially like when children are young, everybody else knows everybody else, so it's like, 'Hey, your kid is walking down the street barefoot and it's wintertime, so you might want to keep an eye out for them.' This is over the phone. There was no internet, of course, at that time. You have a sense of community that you rarely get now when you live in a large, like a subdivision, or even a city. You just don't get that anymore."
