Why LaGrange County?

When we relocated to LaGrange County in 2012, the people in this area welcomed us with open arms. As we became involved in the business community we were struck by the kindness, thoughtfulness, and ‘git-r-done’ mentality of the local community. This is a great place to live and work!
