Meet Guy & Ingrid Baird

Residents since 1990

What do you love most about Fearrington?
One of the things we like most about Fearrington is the unhurried way it has been, and continues to be, developed. The developer has not rushed to complete the job and move on as is often the case.

We have enjoyed watching the gradual addition of new neighborhoods and housing units during our now 25 years here in the village. And we are proud that the developer, R.B. Fitch, is one of us. He lives here!

It is remarkable and appreciated that all this development has taken place while retaining many of the features of the erstwhile dairy farm. Some lady once asked where we live and we mentioned Fearrington, she replied “Oh, you live in Utopia!” There you have it, Utopia means Eden, and that’s what it is to us.


 

Meet Steve Bravy, Catherine Garland & Solo

Resident since 2004

What persuaded you to move to Fearrington?
The location in the Triangle (universities, health care, arts, restaurants) and the beautiful local setting; the chance to make new friends through the many clubs and be involved in as many activities as we choose.

What about the Woods neighborhood appealed to you when deciding between Fearrington’s neighborhoods?
The trees, the more established feel of The Woods appealed to us.

What do you love most about Fearrington?
Being in a community of interesting and friendly people who enjoy many of the same things we do. We also love the opportunities for learning (OLLI), great music, great restaurants, and the Duke Center for Living. We love the Village Center as a place to hang out.

What is one of your fond memories of living at Fearrington?
Recently, we hosted a “block” party. Almost everyone on the street was able to come and we had a wonderful time catching up and meeting the people we didn’t already know. This was just one of the numerous informal gatherings that we’ve been part of, and one of many fond memories.


 

Meet Roger & Rhoda Berkowitz

Residents since 1997

What persuaded you to move to Fearrington?

We were enchanted by Fearrington from the moment we entered the beautiful grounds.  (It probably also didn’t hurt that we were staying at the Inn). We knew it was absolutely the place for us when we discovered McIntyre’s and when we attended a reading in the Barn by the author Julia Alvarez, with every seat taken and every question from the audience a good one.

What aspects of Camden Park appealed to you?

Camden Park was our choice from the start. We were fortunate that a lot on West Camden would be coming available for building across from the lower pond in the park. This location allows for walks in the park during all seasons and easy access to the mail kiosk and village.

What do you love most about Fearrington?

First and foremost, the sense of community. We have met and continue to meet such interesting and engaged people. There are many organizations which focus on areas such as film, politics, the arts etc. – one can participate or not, as one chooses.
We would next have to list McIntyres Book Shop followed by the choices of places to eat from haute cuisine to a quick sandwich – and they are all delicious. The village has become a vibrant and exciting place. We also love the park, the open pastures, beautiful flowers and “our” Belted Galloway cows.

Can you share one of your fond memories at Fearrington?

Rhoda had some surgery that meant she was bedridden for a week.  Two neighbors came by and said that we should not worry about meals, as they would bring them to us every day. Only in Fearrington!


 

Meet Al & Ann Blackburn

Residents since 2013

Why did you decide to move to Fearrington?

We moved here from Hickory to simplify – from our large, activity-based grandparent house to a smaller home more suitable for this stage of our lives. We were looking for a place close to one of our kids – but not so close as to be in their laps. We had lived in Raleigh 20 years earlier, so we knew something about Fearrington. With a son in Chapel Hill, we wanted to take a look this time and it was love at first sight.

What distinguished Fearrington from surrounding communities?

Fearrington offers everything we wanted. Here is why:

  • It is away from the hustle and bustle of the Triangle area, yet is close enough to enjoy all the available culture, sports, shopping, etc.
  • The ambiance is very special – understated elegance – maintained with obvious care and attention to detail.
  • Although in the country, Fearrington has all the big city utilities – water, sewer, cable, high speed internet, underground power lines, etc.
  • It has convenience to everyday shopping needs – grocery, hardware, drugstores, banks, Lowes, Wal-Mart, etc.
  • Great variety in home sizes, prices, and styles. The one we chose was just perfect for us. One floor, 3 BR, 2 BA, huge garage, privacy.
  • The covenants. We love them although others may not. They give us confidence that the beauty of the area will be preserved.
  • The trees. Our home in the woods has no grass to mow! A wonderful private setting with low maintenance.
  • Low fixed costs – low property taxes and no monthly HOA fees.
  • The walking trails. Wonderfully varied opportunities to keep in shape.
  • The Village and the Inn. We are proud to tell far away friends that we live at Fearrington – They either know about it or can Google it to see it is very special.

We looked at several other subdivisions and knew nothing else fit us. Other possibilities were either too raw, too ostentatious, or too crowded and cookie cutter.

Can you share a favorite memory of the Fearrington community?

Since we’ve only been here 6 months, memories are just beginning, but we feel this is HOME! In addition to the above list, we like that there are people from everywhere, and also like the welcoming spirit of the organizations. One can be very active or very quiet and there is no pressure to join in – just many opportunities for friendship and community. We are also very impressed with the Directory, the monthly newsletters, Fearrington Cares, the FHA website, and the overall organization of the community to get things done and be helpful to all.


 

Meet Paul, Jo & T.K. Bolig

Paul, Jo & T.K.

Residents since 2011

What persuaded you to move to Fearrington?

Having spent our professional lives in the Washington, DC area, the slower pace and bucolic setting of Fearrington Village appealed to us. Like Washington, the Triangle area offers many cultural opportunities to be enjoyed.

What about the Weathersfield neighborhood appealed to you when deciding between Fearrington’s neighborhoods?

We found a lovely home in the Weathersfield area and were warmly welcomed by our neighbors. We quickly learned of volunteer activities in the area that we were keen to become involved with. Our “close” in Weathersfield is woodsy and quiet and the perfect setting for bird and squirrel watching.

What do you love most about Fearrington?

We love having the Village close by. The Farmer’s Market on Tuesdays offers tantalizing, locally-sourced items for much of the year. As avid readers, we’re enchanted by McIntyre’s, the best independent bookstore in the country.

What is one of your fond memories of living at Fearrington?

One of our fondest memories, and an experience we’ll enjoy year after year, is the Fearrington Folk Art Show held in the Barn each year.


 

Meet Barry & Joy Bond

Residents since 2005

What persuaded you to move to Fearrington?

We spent our 25th Wedding Anniversary at the Inn and also our 30th. After our second stay we began to explore beyond the Village Center and discovered the various neighborhoods.

What about Spindlewood appealed to you when deciding between Fearrington’s neighborhoods?

We liked the lot sizes and forest, rolling hills of The Woods. When we looked at our house for the first time and saw the vale behind the house and the treetop view in the distance we did not want to leave.

What do you love most about Fearrington?

Fearrington Village is unlike any residential subdivision we have seen. The camaraderie of the neighbors, the clubs and activities, the restaurants, shops, book store, Swim & Croquet, walking trails all combine into the Fearrington charm. But when we approach the Village and see the white fences, silo and Belted Galloways grazing we experience a special welcome – just feels right.

What is one of your fond memories of living at Fearrington?

Opening the door to The Fearrington House Restaurant and being greeted by the friendly smile of Joris, Maître D’, and enjoying a world class meal prepared by Colin followed by Carl, Head Waiter, serving Chocolate Soufflé. Carl poured delicious, hot chocolate sauce with style and a knowing smile that we were about to make a memory.


 

 Meet Pat & Suellen Cabe

Residents since 2006

What persuaded you to move to Fearrington?
We had lived in the region – on the other side of Jordan Lake – for a dozen years before our careers took us elsewhere, so we knew about Fearrington Village from the time it began. After we left, we continued to visit Chapel Hill regularly. When it came time to think about a retirement home, Fearrington seemed worth a serious look. Nathalie graciously gave us a tour and pointed out our lot on Woodham. Designing and building a new house, literally from a blank piece of paper, was both exciting and daunting. Jon Condoret, the Fitch Creations architect at the time, helped us design a house that we have truly loved living in for more the past 10 years.

What about the Bush Creek neighborhood appealed to you when deciding between Fearrington’s neighborhoods?
We wanted some elbow room. Our lot on Woodham is nearly an acre and a quarter, and was all wooded. Much of it still is, which we quite like. Our deck looks out over a deep ravine, so the view is stunning. Woodham is a cul de sac, so there is very little traffic, except for our neighbors.

What do you love most about Fearrington?
The strong sense of community we feel, especially among our Woodham neighbors. Given the demands of our work schedules, “neighboring” was not something we had a lot of time for previously. When we moved here, we had no idea that the neighborhood would be as congenial as it has turned out to be. Our monthly “Wine on Woodham” gatherings are highlights of our social life and a super opportunity to stay in touch with our neighbors.

What is one of your fond memories of living at Fearrington?
We have nothing but fond memories of living at Fearrington. We like to think of them as treasured experiences, which we continue to accumulate as our years in Fearrington go by.


 

Meet Dr. George & Victoria Chall

Residents since 2014

What persuaded you to move to Fearrington?
No persuasion at all. Victoria discovered Fearrington in a small advertisement in the New Yorker Magazine. However, there is a deeper reason Fearrington appealed to us. Victoria was born in Cambridge, Great Britain. Her father was in the Air Force at the time. She lived in a small English village, Rushden, her first 6 years. The Fearrington Founder, Mr. Fitch was an Air Force man, he and Jenny his wife lived in Britain. They modeled Fearrington on quaint English villages. Victoria’s mother’s name is also Jenny. We felt an immediate resonance when we visited the first time. Kind of a mystical connection to a home that was waiting for us.

Over the course of three years we looked at many communities across the nation. When we decided to “re-wire”, Fearrington Village offered everything we enjoy . . . a beautiful home and garden, new friends, the Triangle’s cultural abundance, and many opportunities to still make a positive contribution to the world. The international airport (RDU) was also a plus.

What about the Bradford Place neighborhood appealed to you when deciding between Fearrington’s neighborhoods?
The home we decided upon was the best choice for us. It was a light filled house designed by an award winning architect, Jon Condoret. We needed an office, art studio (Victoria is a 30 year watercolorist), guest room and master: bingo! A private walled garden was essential after living in Manhattan. It is a set back neighborhood with woods. George, an international management consultant is fascinated by our accomplished and active neighbors.

What do you love most about Fearrington?
We love our neighbors. We love the gardens. We love the quiet. We love the varied groups and clubs, activities and especially the Inn, the Goat, the Granary and Bookstore. We love meeting new friends. We love Pittsboro’s arts and music culture. We love driving out to the country and discovering the local organic farms, pottery artists, folk artists and photographing historic buildings.

What is one of your fond memories of living at Fearrington?
The first week we arrived, five different neighbors invited us to their homes. They all shared their experiences of relocating to the area. So many were helpful and resourceful. We felt welcomed and embraced in the midst of the chaos of the move. Every morning since, we wake up and say “Good Decision!” Now it is we who invite newcomers to our home!


 

Meet Greg Christensen & Tim Gura

Resident since 2012

What persuaded you to move to Fearrington?
Tim first met Fearrington in the spring of 1982 when he was a visiting professor at UNC-Chapel Hill. A student in his class was working part-time as a waiter at the Fearrington House and he encouraged me to try it out and meet the chef, Edna Lewis. Greg first came to Fearrington in 1997 as part of a vacation in North Carolina. Both wanted to be near an international airport, somewhat close to water, and rural. Fearrington ticked all those boxes.

What about the Weathersfield neighborhood appealed to you?
When we started looking seriously in January of 2012 we looked at 16-20 possibilities all over Fearrington. But we were New Yorkers used to having maintenance problems solved by building supers. Buying a house carried so many other new problems that we wanted to limit as much as possible the external maintenance difficulties. Weathersfield ideally solved these problems as landscaping was taken care of, external maintenance was overseen by professionals, and – best of all – a unique wooded setting.

What do you love most about Fearrington?
Fearrington is a diverse community of genial souls from all over the world. And it offers countless opportunities to brighten your day.

What is one of your fond memories of living in Fearrington?
There are so many: our first encounter of the pumpkin extravaganza on Halloween, the ever changing vistas around the village so lovingly maintained by the talented gardening staff, and meeting new people who have just moved in or have lived here for years.


 

Meet Dr. Jerry Feldman & Dr. Elizabeth Cuneo

Residents since 2013

What persuaded you to move to Fearrington?
First, we had the informative tour of Fearrington Village with Nathalie from Fitch Creations. Then, lunch with some knowledgeable Fearrington residents at the Granary. The more we got to know, the more we sensed that the culture and environment here was very special. Now after three years we can say that it exceeded our expectations!

What about the Woods neighborhood appealed to you when deciding between Fearrington’s neighborhoods?
We like the “Woods” because the of the natural beauty of all the trees, creeks and winding roads. It’s so quiet and peaceful. And, we love having our own independent, low maintenance home with it’s own “tree house” porch. The two bedrooms on the second floor are especially appreciated when friends and family come to visit and have their own guest area.

What do you love most about Fearrington?
The sense of community! We have met and made friends with so many nice and interesting people. We also like the many and varied clubs of the Homeowners Association, the Fearrington Cares Volunteers, the outdoor “country club” pool, the Village and it’s amenities, and the Duke Fitness Center.

What is one of your fond memories of living at Fearrington?
Our neighbors have become extended family. At first they were helpful in getting us connected with all the services and opportunities in the area. Now they are there with us to celebrate and enjoy the good times together.


 

Meet Jay Emmer

Resident since 2010

What do you love most about Fearrington?

I am not a “love most” or “fond memory” kind of person. I am a retired science teacher, a former city boy/suburbanite who was looking for contentment in a place that provided ready access to cultural, educational, medical, and social activities while not having to be in the middle of all of it. Though certainly not a camper, I wanted a place in the woods which, as you know, is the name of the Spindlewood section. Fearrington Village ticked off every one of my boxes.


 

Meet Paul & Donna Fehrenbach

Residents since 2004

What persuaded you to move to Fearrington?

We lived in this area during our graduate school years, so we were well aware of the moderate climate and beauty of North Carolina.  When it came time to retire from our jobs in Minneapolis, the first thing we wanted was warmer weather but we also remembered how much we enjoyed Chapel Hill.  What made Fearrington unique was that it provided an open and inviting community close to Chapel Hill for people like us who moved across the country and didn’t know a soul.

Why did you choose to live in Camden Park?

We dreamed of living within walking distance of a coffee shop and a good bookstore.  Camden Park’s central location gives us ready access to both of these and more.  We can meet friends at the Goat for a cup of coffee or stop in to see what’s happening at McIntyre’s Books.  It’s one of our favorite bookstores anywhere.

What do you like most about living at Fearrington?

We like the variety of people who live here.  We’ve each been able to find meaningful volunteer activities through contacts at Fearrington.  There are lots of things to do right here and in the surrounding area.  At the same time, when we’ve been really busy, it feels good to return to this peaceful oasis of gardens and parks.

What is one of your fond memories of living at Fearrington?

One of our favorite activities on weekends is to stop in at the Roost (our Fearrington beer gardens).  We sit outside by the fountain, order a tap beer or glass of wine, and listen to the music of local musicians.  It’s a gathering place for people from Fearrington and the surrounding area.  We typically run into friends there but have also met some new acquaintances out there on that lawn.

What did you find unique about the Fearrington experience?

We built our house here.  Drew the plan on the back of a cocktail napkin and brought it in to the Fitch architect.  We’ve never done anything like this before.  He rendered it into blueprints and we went through the whole building process with the very attentive help of a Fitch building manager who helped us through the whole thing step by step.  That will be 10 years ago this July.  She has become a friend and we wouldn’t change an inch of the completed project.  We love our house.


 

Meet John Fernandez & Michelle April

Resident since 2011

What persuaded you to move to Fearrington?
We moved to Fearrington because of its beauty, charm and strong sense of community. Other locations are just developments, but Fearrington is a real community.

What about The Woods neighborhood appealed to you when deciding between Fearrington’s neighborhoods?
The Woods neighborhood appeal was that it was set back from the highway and it felt like the setting of a vacation home in the mountains or at a lake. We like to be outdoors and our outdoor space is beautiful and surrounded by trees.

What do you love most about Fearrington?
What we love most about Fearrington is that the village is so close with the beautiful shops, outstanding restaurants for all occasions, and the outdoor activities at the Roost. We love to walk to the village with our dogs as often as possible and take advantage of what we have right here in our own neighborhood.

What is one of your fond memories of living at Fearrington?
We have two very fond memories. The first was when our neighbors, Chuck and Albina, greeted us, even before we moved in, with a plate of brownies and welcomed us to the neighborhood. The second memory was the first time we attended the Halloween party at the village with the beautifully carved pumpkins, great music, great food and the lively crowd. What a wonderful surprise. It was like a Norman Rockwell painting!


 

Meet Blaine Hall

Resident since 2010

How did you discover Fearrington?

I moved to Fearrington Village after having been “actively dreaming” about living here for years.  When I bought my home, Laura Morgan said to me, “you know Blaine; I have you in my computer back to 1996.”  And it is true that I dreamt of one day living here since that time, when I began commuting to Duke from Pinehurst, where I previously lived.

What is special to you about your experiences with Fearrington?

My home in Fearrington Village is the first home I’ve ever owned. I grew up in a Children’s Home through high school graduation and I have paid for all my education and everything I’ve ever had in my life. My parents never owned their home either.

Some years back, I wrote a literary memoir entitled Hestia’s House, with the overarching theme of home.  I wrote of my longing to someday have a home—my own home.  And I would name it “Hestia’s House,” after the Greek goddess of the hearth.

My dreams came true at Fearrington Village on March 23, 2010.  I will always remember Ms. Morgan fondly as she, over many years, helped me keep my dream alive. She was the key to the front door of my house, and to my goal of living at Fearrington Village.

When I at last see the stretching, white picket fences enfolding the cows serenely grazing within, I know that I have reached Home.


 

Meet Maury & Ann Henkels

Residents since 2009

What persuaded you to move to Fearrington?

We lived in rural Orange County and had always hoped that we would some day live in Fearrington. It was a frequent day trip for lunch and garden ideas. When the Camden Park area was beginning to be developed, any doubt that we might have had disappeared. We had been frequent visitors to Charleston and I had lived in Savannah, so the area felt like home.

What about Camden Park appealed to you when deciding between Fearrington’s neighborhoods?

When the time came, we knew that we needed a single floor and we hoped for a screened porch. And there was “the” house! Perfect for us; with the added bonus of an established fenced garden. Nathalie was our local go to person and provided invaluable help and information.

What do you love most about Fearrington?

I like being able to walk my dog (and myself) on lighted safe streets. I came from a rural area where ‘going around the block’ was three miles, no sidewalks, no street lights, but a dozen or so farm dogs trailing along – not mine, just my entourage.

If you could share one fond memory of Fearrington with someone, what would it be?

What makes Fearrington wonderful is the neighbors. They came over immediately and invited us into their homes as if we had always been friends. And now we always will be.


 

Meet Kristi Kerins

Resident since 2014

What persuaded you to move to Fearrington?

I was drawn to Fearrington by the price point of the homes and its description as a community of active retirees. As I transition into this period of my life following retirement, I look forward to connecting, networking and forging new friendships. Fearrington and its residents also benefit greatly from proximity to the Research Triangle, the state capital and all the resources provided by the outstanding universities and colleges located here.

What about Camden Park stood out to you when making your decision?
The density of the population of Camden Park appealed to me for safety reasons and ease of meeting others. I also love to walk throughout the park and enjoy it’s beauty.

Would you share one of your fondest Fearrington memories with us?
It is a bit early in my time here to share fondest memories, but I have been truly touched by the warm welcome of my neighbors and the caring nature that permeates the community. I simply love my home’s location beside a pasture, and the Belties bring me joy each and every day – watching their antics and overhearing their “conversations.” I smile as I drive down Village Way and await the sense of feng shui I feel as I turn into the village. It is a feeling of calm, contentment and home. It’s good to be here!


 

Meet Richard Potter & Ann Bromberg

Residents since 2011

What persuaded you to move to Fearrington?
When we were visiting our children over a period of a couple of years in Chapel Hill, my daughter Liz drove me here just to look. I came back several times by myself and fell in love with the whole place and the amenities. We even suggested to our New York friends to move here before we actually arrived. They bought immediately.

What about Camden Park stood out to you when making your decision?
Camden became the most likely place for us even though we saw other houses we liked in different areas. Downsizing was primary in every way. Sidewalks and the park for walking, the charm of the neighborhood, proximity to the village and neighbors have been the focal point. Richard’s physical limitations made Camden a must.

What do you love most about Fearrington?
The people is what makes it. We have so many friends and not enough time to enjoy them all. Diversified in every sense of the word. It makes life more interesting.

Would you share one of your fondest Fearrington memories with us?
Last year one of our most precious neighbors was at home with hospice. A great guy: talented, loved to sing and joyous about life. The neighbors from their street, and others, gathered outside his home and we serenaded him. His wife brought him out in a wheelchair, and he joined us. We all cherish his memory.


 

Meet Eddie & Marva Price

Residents since 1979

What persuaded you to move to Fearrington?
We had a house built in another of RB’s country home neighborhoods and lived there for four years before wandering down to Fearrington one Sunday afternoon to look at the model home here. Our daughter was approaching school age at that time and would attend a private Montessori Day School program in Chapel Hill, so we were looking for a home in Chapel Hill. There were not many new homes on the market during the fall of 1979, so we ventured to Fearrington to look at the new homes. We fell in love with the model home, but, it was already sold. RB assured us that we could have a home just like the model with special features of our choosing. The rest is history. We loved our house then and continue to love our home after living in Fearrington exactly 36 years this November.

What about the Historic District appealed to you when deciding between Fearrington’s neighborhoods?
Believe it or not, when RB built our home, what is now called the Historic District was the only residential part of Fearrington that had been built. There were fewer than 60 homes, and there were no streets beyond what is now the Historic District of Fearrington. The Village had not been developed.

What do you love most about Fearrington?
We love having neighbors, lots of neighbors tucked away across the whole of Fearrington. There are numerous activities to pick and choose to accommodate the lifestyle of younger and older residents.

If you could share one fond memory of Fearrington with someone, what would it be?
It is difficult to pick just one. Ranking pretty high are taking walks throughout the neighborhood on streets and trails, relaxing at the pool, and going over to the Fearrington Inn and Restaurant for the packages for our special occasions with an afternoon tea, three course dinner, overnight, and breakfast. These were special getaways without leaving home.


 

Meet Ricka Samulski

Resident since 2013

What persuaded you to move to Fearrington?
I wanted to move but wasn’t sure where to move to. A friend invited me to her home at Fearrington for lunch. For the first time, I experienced driving down the tree-lined Village Way into the residential area. It was a tranquil and pleasurable experience. Once inside my friend’s home, I inquired if there were any homes for sale in Fearrington. After lunch, we looked on the website, and I learned there were. So, I immediately contacted a realtor I knew. My friend told me about the club offerings and she drove me around Fearrington Village. The rest is history.

What about the Camden Park neighborhood appealed to you when deciding between Fearrington’s neighborhoods?
I wasn’t interested in any specific neighborhood. I did not want the upkeep of a wooded lot. Neither did I want an older home. I preferred a detached home with an attached garage. It just so happened that the home that appealed to me was in Camden Park. I appreciate the close proximity to the market area, medical and fitness facilities and to the Gathering Place.

What do you love most about Fearrington?
The residents are very cordial. To my disbelief, I truly enjoy seeing the belted Galloway cows as I enter and depart Fearrington Village! My grandson enjoys the goats. It is unique for restaurants to have such names as The Belted Goat and Granary. Fearrington Village also has the magnificent Fearrington House Inn! It is nice to attend the events at Roost with neighbors and friends. A quite unique amenity is Fearrington Cares! It is wonderful that residents of Fearrington Village have access to numerous clubs, walking trails, a pool, spa, bookstore, a boutique, the Duke Center for Living, the Duke Primary Care Clinic and the Center for Physical Rehabilitation. Last but not least the proximity to the Triangle area is much appreciated. Fearrington is a great place to live!


 

Meet Tom & Marilyn Sawyer

Residents since 1993

What persuaded you to move from Pinehurst to Fearrington?

We were anxious to be close to the University and its activities as well as the attractiveness and rural location of Fearrington.

What prompted you to make the decision to move within Fearrington from Spindlewood to Camden?

We were anxious to have a house that was all on one floor, and we liked the idea of being closer to the center of the village. We love to walk on the sidewalks which we didn’t have in Spindlewood.

What has made living at Fearrington so special to you?

It is hard to single out one particular event in our 20 years we have lived here. There is just no end to the activities available here. We love the pool in the summer. The many programs and events sponsored by Fearrington Cares, the book readings at McIntyres, the various restaurants available have all made for a very enjoyable life. But most of all we love our neighbors and all of the many friends we have made over the years.


 

Meet Max & Sieny Van Voorst

Residents since 2004

Why did you decide to move to Fearrington?

Pleasant visits over a number of years while traveling on our way back up north. There are many cultural opportunities and medical services. It reminded us of an area in Pennsylvania where we lived. The way it is laid out, maintained, and the variety of people that live here. And the number of Dutch-speaking people that live here.
