Many academic retirees settle here. There are many "intellectual " activities and events at the nearby campus and in the city. The city center is very walkable and recently redesigned and beautified. There are a plethora of middle range to upscale loft style apartments and more being built. Home ownership is very reasonable. Houses in the city sell between $50,000-$200,000 which is why many people retire here. Our campus population keeps the city lively and students and residents get along well.
