Never lived in Kansas or Mo. before. I understand that winters can be pretty cold and summers humid. Is this a fair assumption? How much snow should you expect in Atchison? How hot and humid is the summers?
We REALLY love the old homes and the atmosphere I've seen on the internet. We're retired young and want a small town feel with low crime and lots of history. Feed me some info if you have any.

Winters can be cold, sometimes with alot of snow, sometimes with very. We can get into the single digits, wind chills below zero. Summers can hot and humid, but you do get use to. As with any town city, we have had layoffs of businesses, haven't heard very much on people losing homes. Crime rate is not bad. Not sure what it is for sure. We do have the college, a new hospital going in across from the walmart store south of town. The steel foundry is putting up new buildings to make way for the new bridge. I hope that when you move, you will like it.

Hi! Atchison is really great, I recommend it 100%. I go to the Benedictine College right in town and have fallen in love. I come from a big city in Florida and this small town atmosphere is divine. I feel completely safe all the time. Since I moved from a warm climate I rate the winter weather pretty chilly but, thats just my opinion. Yesterday it snowed about seven inches but I believe that is rare. The summers are wonderfully beautiful and the humidity is not unbearable.
