"Bishop Gadsden is unique in many ways, one of which is our amazing location. It's truly incredible that this community, with its over 100 acres of lush natural beauty, is also within the city limits of one of the most extraordinary small cities in America — with its vibrant arts and cultural scene, first class restaurants, state-of-the-art medical facilities, and so much more. Combined with beautiful beaches minutes in the other direction, it just doesn't get any better than this!"
