General comments   
The town seems to be clean and relaxing, I would say the downtown area could use a little updating, but it has always been clean whenever we have visited this town. The residents seem to be very friendly and have always treated us with respect and kindness. Jonesville has a great event every year, it is called Jonesville Riverfest, many of my family members attend this event and enjoy the time we spend in this town. I would certainly recommend this place to anyone who lives in Michigan or is just visiting the area.
