Quaint, but much less isolated. I had just read something referring to Lancaster as one of the fastest growing cities in Ohio. Not a tremendous range of community colleges at this time, but OU-L comes to mind which is Ohio University's Lancaster campus. Many students find educational opportunities at Hocking College in Nelsonville, Ohio as well as driving to Columbus.
If interested in a small gated community just 12 miles south of Lancaster, Ohio, feel free to stop by my web site below. You'll find school reports for the area there.
