Setting & Lifestyle
Wilmore is a small town where college students really create the town feel and character. So many small towns have lost population over the last 20-30 years that having the local college presence in the Wilmore area, with all of the energy of the students filling area dorms and apartments each fall, really helps Wilmore maintain a good economy.
For a small city, there is also a high proportion of single, often educated, people living in Wilmore. This is not typical for smaller communities in America, and adds a feeling of vibrancy to Wilmore.
