My hometown is so small that the post office was the only business in town. And the phone booth was our hang out. The phonebooth is still there and working!

We have the only stop light in the entire county.

There's one stop light blinkin' off and on
everyone knows when there neighbor's gone
they roll up the streets when the sun goes down

I'm going to stick with it this time

Count two for living in the old Doctor's office ;0) That's where I'm sitting right now, actually!

I think some people have me beat, but Williams is small enough we do have the local bank, the local post office, a bar, and a junkshop/restaurant... not to mention 3 churches. Walking the outside rim of the town with all the houses included is about 1.5 miles.

I'm not so used to it... when I'm out walking (where I'm headed next for a little exercise) I regularly get stopped to ask where I'm going and if I need a lift.. because it's a small town and nobody expects bad things of each other.

What can I say? Coming from KC, it's a little strange

My town is so small that when we ran the map for miles fpr walking we had to criss cross the town 4 times and walk the local track twice to get 2 miles.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.

call into the one & only bar/restaurant to get a "to go" order and they not only recognize your voice, they know what you're gonna order (and that your husband likes sour cream on his criss-cut fries!)

This is an old post, i know, but it looked fun :)

Wow you have me beat, I live in a small town too, we have one 4 way stop sign and one traffic light at the grade school, but its larger than I thought compared to your towns. But I use to live on a farm, and the only town was Orient and it was a one or two street town and that was it. But this is SD not Iowa, but I hope you dont' mind me posting here, its fun, making new friends from Iowa.

That is so TJ. Kids in small towns have a hard time telling lies.. . Everyone knows their parents and are wiling to tell everything and everyone.

I LOVE LIVING IN RURAL IOWA

I told my son-in-law from the big city. If you plan to live in a small town, please let everyone know what you are doing. ... If you don't they will make something up and it will be better than what you are doing.
