A Town That Has It All

“In Eldred you can buy groceries, open a savings account, fill your prescriptions, buy hammer and nails, get your car repaired, insure your car and home, get in shape or get a tattoo, eat a great meal, get your haircut, plan your estate, try a new hair color, attend the church of your choice, fuel up or wash your car, feel good about your child’s education, borrow a book, and at the end of the day enjoy an adult beverage or ice cream treat.”
– Char Bennett Stoughton
