Did you grow up in small hometown? I did. The nostalgia and charm sorta faded away by the late 70s due property damages from flooding, economic recess forcing businesses to close, and modernization - demolishing charming old schools and replacing with cold, impersonal structures with no character.
This brings me back small hometowns and their appeal. We miss places like, we crave places like this, we want to visit places like, and some of us want to move to places like this. I sought out to discover some of these such places and stumbled upon this beautiful photo essay... Coolest Small Towns in American 2011.
Let me share with you a wee bit about a few small hometowns in my own backyard. These hometowns have retained much of their original charm.

Hometowns...small hometowns especially offer a cozy, homespun feeling to your soul. This is something that is missing from large town and huge cities, not that these places are bad - just different. Stepping back into time is a good way to unwind and appreciate a simpler era.
My 2 Questions:
1. What is your favorite small hometown - yours or another?
2. What is the name of your hometown? Do you know the population, if so tell us?
