I had lived in in Freeport for several years moving there in my mid forty's and I liked it very much. It's very small and still has some shopping near by. The sad thing I have seen is they are down to 1 Wendys from 2, 1 Burger King from 2, Hardys is gone, Kmart is now gone,they had built a Sonic and they're gone after about a year in business. Plant closings. Freeport is a shell of what it once was. It's a shame I really liked Freeport. Now the reason I mentioned the above restaurants is not to belittle them but to make a point that if any business survives it's them and when you see them go that's a sign. Now the the reason I'm gone from Freeport is My my taxes went from $1200. a year which is to much for the area and by the way my house was a block from Carroll and a block from Empire, is because from $1200. a year taxes to $3000. No to hell with Freeport. I moved to an eastern suburb of Cleveland, paid one third less for my house that would be a good hundred thousand dollars more in Freeport and my taxes are $2000 a year. If you want a good area of Freeport rule of thumb is west of west street. Don't go by the pictures of houses the realtors have, they spruce up the houses to sell them after all that is their job to sell the property. If you can't go by the house and see for yourself right away then go to google maps street view. Living in Freeport was a wonderful part of my life but I will not pay that kind of taxes for that kind of housing.
