Review of Red Oak, Iowa

Norman Rockwell must have lived here
Star Rating - 7/13/2008
I was born in Red Oak, Iowa and moved away when i was 12. I have lived all over the country including Georgia, Mississippi, California, New Jersey, New York City, and The Hamptons, but there is no place that has quite the same "hometown" feeling that Red Oak does. Red Oak is known for its architecture including 4,000 square foot Victorians and Colonials which have been painstakingly restored and can be purchased for under $200k, with some homes constructed on entire city blocks. I look forward to the day that I can sell my New York City apartment and move back to beautiful Red Oak, Iowa.
