I live in ware and in my opinion, there's way worse towns out there like warren, where molly bish was murdered in the woods. Ware is probably worst when it comes to unemployment


HomeSnacks User

live in Ware and moved from a much more affluent community 2 years ago. First off, you data is incorrect. The town of Ware has 10, 000 residents most of which have lived here their entire lives. Average household income is $51,000.

Ware has a vibrant business community and still embraces community as a virtue. I know all my neighbors. Every one of them! They are some of the most wonderful, hard working, honest people I know.

I was in the Navy and lived many different places. Never have I found a stronger sense of commitment, community, and friendliness anyWare! So if you care about community, Ware is the town for you.
