From the Moreland town website:
Moreland is a historic small town with strong community spirit. Buildings old and new will honor the heritage of the community by avoiding “anywhere USA” franchise-style development. Downtown Moreland is the social and cultural heart of the community, featuring festivals, churches, museums and recreational opportunities to serve residents and neighboring communities. The small town charm where people feel safe and secure, away from the stresses of big city life.
