Jessica and Ben Brewster moved to Saxonburg in 2018 to provide a simpler life for themselves and their daughter, Ella, 12, and they haven’t regretted the decision for a second.

The purpose of the move was to greatly shorten Ben’s commute to his job in Sarver and to put Jessica nearer to her Main Street bakery, Batch.

Plus, the Brewsters wanted Ella to attend a small school district.

All that has worked out, but the family most enjoys the perks of living in Saxonburg, such as walking to do and get everything.
