• There's always something to do.

    The Village experience is perhaps best defined by the many activities that bring our neighbors together. We believe the charm and appeal of a small town come not from just the structures and spaces we create, but from the lively gatherings - both planned and spontaneous - that spring up among its people.

    From movies on the green to local produce stands at the farmers market...from live music to playful children's performances...the range of neighborhood happenings draws people to our outdoor spaces. Whether your interests are artistic, culinary, sporting, or all of the above, there is something for every taste, in every season.

    Just across the street, Hendrix College features an event calendar full of academic lectures, theatre performances, concerts and discussions, many of which are free and all of which are located just steps away.
