About Preston

Everything you loved about the country as a child, such as dairy farms, quiet fishing ponds and berry picking, can still be found in Preston.

A mere two percent of Preston is commercial. But because the development is not concentrated in one area, the town seems almost entirely undeveloped. There are 13 dairy farms, four vegetable greenhouses and a few horse farms.

The town is currently engaged in developing Preston Riverwalk
