The Village of South Holland has historically been known as a safe community with a low crime rate. The crime rate is lower now that it was in 1981 when such record keeping began. It also is known as the Community of churches with more than 30 churches of many denominations.
South Holland is unique in that their residents enjoy keeping Sunday as a “quiet day” each week. Businesses in South Holland are closed on Sunday, with a few exceptions such as restaurants and gas stations. These businesses are open because they serve the traveling public.

Manhattan is a more rural town with a more "small town" feel and the crime rate reflects that. It does not boast a huge rental market but does, if you are not in a hurry, have rentals come available as both single family homes and townhomes.
