Try buying groceries in this fake town. You can't really buy any necessities except animal foods. Rt. 664 thru Bremen is an hideous eye sore that keeps me driving right on. I will admit Bremen has some of the most beautiful homes in the residential section with charming brick streets. Bremen was a town to be proud of in the 40's-70's. Good Luck on coming back though.

Having been born and raised around Bremen in the 60"s, Bremen is not at all what it us to be.
the town has literly dried up, they talk about the diner in Bremen, is that it in Bremen.
If you want to buy groceries you have to go out of town.
To buy beer you have to go out of town, sorry if you people want to be stuck in the Charles Dickens
days, I say have at it.

Thanks for the article. We always wanted to live down around there, but the commute to Columbus was too much.

Revitalization of towns and cities is great, and would be even better if it was funded by their governments rather than relying on volunteerism. That way, you could hire more people, pay them a fair wage, and thus build the economy even more.

Good to see the spirit of Bremen is still alive --- Congrats to the many volunteers who are working on the town improvements --- Fortunately the Fairfield Union school district with its quality schools helps the town's standing and vice versa.

Tomato Town that's never been quite sure what it is: Suburb of Columbus or Etna.

Are you crazy? You think things get done by taxing people to death and hiring overpaid union employees at some prevailing wage? Some of most magnificent churches, museums and cultural institutions in this country have been built through volunteerism.

Easton is fake. Bremen is real. Bremen has a history and some residents who really care. They are to be congratulated. Proof positive some people will find something to complain and whine about in anything. Even when its volunteers trying to better their community.

When Bremen gets the Sewer problems solved it will be a nice place to live. All we need now is a large store so we don't have to leave town to get the things we need at a price we can afford.
Way to go Bremen.
Connie - Thanks for all your good works.

This an excellent example of "localism" at work. Keep the state and federal governments out of your community business and your community thrives.

But that article misses some important aspects, for instance the folks there don't eat at the big international burger restaurants, but rather at the locally owned where the money stays right there. Moreover, they don't shop at the big mega store, you know the name, rather they shop at the locally owned where the money, again, stays in the community.

Also missing is the great contribution the Amish make to the greater community through their locally made goods and grown produce.

Again, the lesson for all of Ohio is to get Columbus and Washington out of your community, not to forget big international business and you community become prosperous. This is something we could learn down here in Meigs County.
