Arbon Valley – The Best Place on Earth
Arbon Valley – The Best Place on Earth Arbon Valley has gone through changes over the past 100 years just like any town has.  However, if you see an old photo of your great-grandpa standing on a street with his field behind him, chances are you could pick out that spot and it would look exactly the same today.  This town is full of rich history as well as kind and honest people.
“Have you ever been down to Arbon Valley ?
I spend a lot of time there in my mind.
And if God doesn’t live in Arbon Valley,
I’ll bet that’s where he spends most of his time.”
