I haven't experienced any crime. would love to see a mall added in the future! there's not much to do here from what I've seen. Would love more stores brought to the area would bring more employment along with revenue. Palace point is always fun but gets bored after a while. Would love to see planet fitness to join our town also!!!

Brookland eats is so far my favorite. Very hip scene. And golden grille is another fav. Bad is there's no clothing stores other than Wal-Mart and Cato. Both cheap clothes. Would love to see 501 turn into more of a highway.

I have lived in the Roxboro, Person co area all my life. As far as home values, they are way above what you have on here due to being located so close to Durham and Raleigh. Most people who live in the area work outside of the area because it is cheaper to work somewhere else but live here.

I like the Timberland restaurant. It's small but the food is good.
