Population: 7,895

Founded: 1888

County: Joseph County

Map Location:usljosephcounty.jpg

ABOUT TOWN: Located to the north of Monitor by about 12 minutes, Apache River is suburban/rural town located on the eastern shore of the Apache River. The town is home to many vacation homes. The considerably drier weather here and 300 plus days of sunshine make Apache River a popular vacation get away for camping and water sport. Also being close to Monitor, the city is within reach of "big city" services. With this combination of isolation, closeness, and natural beauty, Apache River has become a growing and popular destination.

Hargrove Road is the main road in and out of Apache River that branches off the highway. There are a few gas stations and businesses in town, enough to keep the residents happy, including a grocery store. There are no chain stores located in town besides the grocery store. The small downtown street has a few shops for the locals to enjoy including a Asian cuisine eatery, a antique shop, general store, and book shop.

A big portion of the residents in Apache River are wealthy and there are many nice mansions along the riverfront. Vacation homes dot the townscape and there are many full time residents as well. The town has a elementary school and a high school as well.

The city hall is located by the waterfront across the street from the boat launch and marina. Located within the city hall is the Apache River Police Department and Apache River Fire Department. The Joseph County Sheriff's Office also has a boat unit parked at the marina all year round in case needed. Located in town is also a medical clinic.

LOCATION: Apache River is more dry then nearby Chane and Northwood County by a long ways. It falls within the rain shadow of nearby Chase mountains to the west. It is located on the Apache River and sits within a valley known as the Apache River Valley north of Monitor.

HISTORY: The area was settled in the early 1850's, and earlier by the indigenous people. The site was actually the location of a large tribal village up until the 1870s when white settlers began to move in more. The town was incorporated in 1888. The town had a reputation for lawlessness in the 1880s-1890s, but that subsided when more people moved to Monitor.

ATTRACTIONS: The Apache River and 300 days of sunshine a year. Warm temperatures during the summer months and nearby to other attractions. During the summer months, wildflowers grow all around Apache River and become a popular attraction.

Perfect work and amazing work on details, I love that first scene.

For the buildings in the third picture, you may use some trees to hide those leveling walls, for example that big wall behind the large house.
That would make things look alot better :D
