Setting & Lifestyle

(Children, for example, often can't help themselves from being noisy, and being parents ourselves, we know!) Shohola has relatively few families with children living at home, and is quieter because of it. Renters and college students, for their own reasons, can also be noisy. Shohola has few renters and college students. But the biggest reason it is quieter in Shohola than in most places in America, is that there are just simply fewer people living here.
