North Manchester is the home of Manchester College, a small, liberal arts campus (1,000 students) with many events that residents attend. There are also many opportunities to volunteer on campus, at the library, and in the community. North Manchester had just over 6,000 residents in 2010. The town is located in north-central Indiana.
There is at least one retirement community in the area (see link at top left). Picture of Covered Bridge and North Manchester's Commercial District, both on the National Register of Historic Places, are courtesy of Wikipedia and Nyttend.
