"A main road that doesn't feel much like one"

Jackson Corners Road in Milan is a county highway that enters town from Columbia County to the north and west and exits back out to Columbia again on the east side. It has a major intersection with the Taconic State Parkway and is by all accounts a main road, but it's a fairly lonely one.

This road is mainly in farm country. Going in either direction, you aren't going to encounter many houses, but one thing I can say about this road with certainty is that it's green and hilly, but when all those trees change colors in the fall, this is just one of those places you have to be. Aside from that, there's little around here, including homes.

The values of those homes are about what I've come to expect for rural areas of this county, which means properties with lots of land: they're expensive. Some are under $300,000, but you're likely to find just as many over that amount, with some way over. There are a few very large, with-land homes here worth millions of dollars. Is it a rich neighborhood, though? I wouldn't say so. In fact, I wouldn't say it's much of a neighborhood at all because it's so rural. It's nowhere near your average suburban side-street with houses close together and people walking their dogs on the sidewalk. You'd be lucky to know more than a few people living near you up here.

When you do find other buildings, some might be farm-related, which isn't that uncommon in this area of Dutchess County. What you will not see are an array of local businesses; some small towns in the county have relatively vibrant business districts, but Milan doesn't really, and even if it did, it's not on Jackson Corners Road. It's more productive to tell you what is here than what isn't, because the list of what isn't is virtually endless.

One of those things that is nearby is outdoor recreation. The Roeliff Jansen Kill Multiple Use Area (park/recreation area) is very close, as is the Roeliff Jansen Kill (creek) for which it is named. Golf also isn't too far away and if there's one thing this road has going for it, it's that the Taconic State Parkway is right here, so you can get to other places north or south of here quickly.

Traffic and crime aren't going to bother you up here, but you also won't have any local options for eating out or shopping, and doctors and schools are miles away. This is not the kind of road you live on if you want to be close to things or desire a suburban area. It's not even somewhere you'd want to be if you want to be close to a job or your kids' schools, because neither exists around here. It's rural, it can be costly, and it's isolated.
