Today, I'm picking up where I left off in an earlier post (Auburn). Don't freak out because there are some pre-conditions. I'm not going to let just anybody move here. But if you're Catholic and serious about it, if you have a desire to simplify your life and basically get off of the fast track and onto the Nickle Plate Trail, if you don't have a fear of "glad poverty" and you want to live in a small Midwest river town where you could walk to work, school and church, and are interested in transforming a town into a place where everyone (like us) would want to live, then consider my list carefully. You think I'm joking, but I'm not. You don't have to build an Ave Maria to have Auburn. All you need is enough like minded families to band together, pray and work. If we're going to build up a civilization of love, a small town in the Midwest is as good a place as any to start. So humor me!
Reason number one: Dirt cheap real estate.
Want to live in town within walking distance of church and work? Here's what $100,000 will get you.
Want to live in the country? Add 22 acres to the above and add another hundred grand. You could raise your own beef, pork and chicken, and have a garden big enough to feed the entire parish.
