Hi all! My husband and I are from Demopolis, Alabama and lived in Mobile for 7 years with the Coast Guard before being restationed to the coast of Oregon...well, we're coming home to Alabama, and thinking of moving to somewhere between Tuscaloosa and Columbus, MS, since he'll be working in Columbus and I hope to get a job at Taylor Hardin in Tuscaloosa...I'm not familiar with the area between the two cities and was hoping someone could give me some information...We are looking at Gordo, Coal Fire, etc...how are the cities, schools, etc? We own a mobile home in Mobile, and would like to move it there to a small plot of land that we can lease or rent...any and all information will be appreciated...we can't WAIT to come home!!!

Do you happen to know a traveling gnome?
OK...there is not a whole lot between Columbus & Tuscaloosa...but since you're from Demopolis, that should be no shock! Just very small towns. But then, you're not that far from either city.

I don't know how much it cost to move a mobile home now a days, but it isn't cheap and with the cost of gas now a days, I am sure it is even more expensive. Maybe someone here can tell you

Good luck and welcome home

Default Gordo Alabama

Between Columbus and Tuscalloosa you have several smaller towns then you have Reform and Gordo.

Reform and TOrdo are both in pickens county whcih as an very good school system. OF the two the Gordo school rates higher with state testing.
Also the Methodist chruch in Gordo has a very god program for youth and young adults.

You definitely need to come for a week and look around. I don't know anything about the schools in Gordo and Reform, but both towns are terribly depressing and run down. As you get closer to Tuscaloosa, the Buhl/Elrod area is a little nicer, IMO. Also, don't rule out Fayette. It's about 40 miles to both Columbus and Tuscaloosa.
