"A sleepy little town along I-70"

Roggen is a small farming community with only 523 residents. As it lies on I-76 there are also a lot of truckers who call this home as it's easy to jump on the highway. The homes are laid out on acreage and no two are alike. It's a pretty area in the spring and summer when things turn green, but can look cold and stark in the fall and winter. Although the average household income here is lower than the states average, so are the housing prices. There are a variety of sizes and shapes, but in the mix are some really cute, little older homes that look as if they've seen a lot of years and come out still looking nice.

There are no amenities in Roggen and as of the last time I passed through, I don't remember seeing any restaurants either. There is an elevator branch here but not much else. Residents need to travel elsewhere for shopping or dining and while there are a lot of little towns along I-70 where you can find things, Denver is just under an hour away, so it would be feasible to make the trip every week or two.

I would think this little town would appeal to those who don't like the big city or who want to try their hand at farming. There's lots of land here for cheaper than a lot of areas, nice people, and quick access to the highway.
