What Renters Like and Dislike About Wilder

It is very private, yet convenient to major interstate highways. My neighbors have been there for decades and know the details of my house. The town is cool. It's an old railroad town that has reinvented itself as an arts hub. There are several new, diverse restaurants downtown.
