This Month Olney, MD named top 100 best cities


Yesterday Money Magazine listed their top 100 cities to live across the U.S. Surprisingly Olney, MD was #17 in their rank. Whats more surprising is their ranking with the increased foreclosure rates in rural Maryland.

Their description of Olney is:

Population:
32,900
Median home price (2006): $499,025
Average property taxes (2006): $2,260

Once a rural crossroads village, Olney is now a bustling community with businesses and residences radiating from the town's historic center. As a modern community that maintains its old-time charm, Olney gives families the chance to enjoy small-town amenities among bits of history - an 1838 farmhouse used as a girl's boarding school, Civil War badges and bullets hidden behind a shopping center. Plus, it offers easy access to Baltimore and Washington, D.C.
