Live With Intention

Intentional living might include owning a historic home with character, a lake home, or building your own.  It is an easy drive to many surrounding cities. You might be one of the many working remotely, with fast internet speeds and fiber-to-the-home service. If you have an entrepreneurial spirit, come join our local business district. It is amazing how a town with 2,300 people can offer all the amenities of a larger city but with a small and safe community environment.  It is often thought that being in a bigger city means more experiences and opportunities. We believe the opposite to be true. Smaller communities welcome your energy and ideas toward volunteering and local causes. Your time and talents won’t just be noticed but will be appreciated and praised.
