Smile Cheaper to live in another stste

I lived in Mountain View for over 14 years. Played music at the Ozark Folk Center. This is the home of a famious music writer, Jimmy Driftwood. Remember the song, "Tennesse Stud", Jimmy wrote it, amoung over 500 others. This town is layed back about 50 years in time. The people are friendly. Yes, its a tourest towne. The pop when I left their was, 2600. I know it has grown bigger now.

I was wondering if anyone would like to comment on life in Mountain View, AR? My husband and I are looking into buying some vacant land and building in or around that area. Any info relating to economy, weather, taxes, population size, friendliness of residents, etc., would be greatly appreciated. If you like it there, or don't, please tell me your opinions. It is better to get feedback from those who live there than from the chamber of commerce which will only give me a biased opinion.

I appreciate any and all replies!!

Thanks a bunch!!
Danger........................Caution............. .............Research!
We had the same idea as you and your husband, however, we were unfortunate enough to proceed with our idea. We were ripped off, the community was/is closed to outsiders who ruffle feathers whether you are being honest or not. We too purchased a land and cabin deal from Mountain View Custom Homes, LLC, owner Andrew L. Wittchow and his wife, Sherrie Wittchow. We were scammed pretty good, along with others who were victimized by them and their business. Alot of covering up went on in regards to these people, seemingly because his wife is a local. Andrew Wittchow has an extensive criminal history in the state of Wisconsin, and has recently pled guilty to a class b felony, theft of property in Mountain View. There is alot of crime there, and you will see this fact if you order the Leader Newspaper in Mountain View, and research it awhile before you make your decision to move there. Criminals in Mountain View, Arkansas ususally will get off with sweet plea deals and the punishment for crime there is lacking in order to prevent it. Take Care, and we would recommend you look far away from Mountain View, Arkansas for a place to live and stay for any period of time.
