I was born and raised in Los Angeles and hubby was raised in Glendora, just east of Los Angeles. Believe me, you will find Mountain Home very small town and yes, conservative, especially after living in So Cal. I think people who do not adjust to living, say, in AR do expect it to be like where they came from. We will say, they came from Ca and want Ca to move with them..

How long have you lived where you are? Do things change much around there from year to year? As you know, here in LA, entire blocks can change shops, looks, ect. in just one year! Very annoying to say the least.

We have been here just short of 5 years. Nothing changes a lot, but it is growing which is good as long as it doesn't grow too fast. For the most part, the growth has to do with some of the company headquarters that are in NWA so the changes are good. Here in BV we had a huge growth spurt from the mid 90s to about 2005 but it has slowed down quite a bit. We really do love almost everything about the area.

Yes. A lot of those stories are broad generalizations applied to all of northern Arkansas based off things that happened in a city about an hour away from Mtn. Home quite a number of years ago. Mountain Home is very, very imported so its residents are from a wide variety of places. The majority are (admittedly) older white retirees, but if you don't mind that it is a very pretty area with great schools and top notch healthcare. Although african americans are certainly a small minority there, you would definitely not be the only couple in the area and it might be worth a try for at least the 8 week contract.

From someone that has been there....Mtn Home is a blessing in disguise. I am currently living in Atlanta and I cannot wait to get home to the Ozarks. I live in a very nice area of Atlanta, but still am afraid of the 'rush' associated with the massive population. I am older, yes, but the hills and valleys of North Arkansas are great compared to the 'highways' and 'byways' of Atlanta. You name one reason to live in a place like this, if your not still in the work force, and I'll give you two to try Arkansas. Just my opinion, but an honest one. Please dont hate me, but I am living proof, you can, and should go home, as I wish I did. Atlanta is beautiful, but peace of mind is more important to me. IMHO.....

and nobody does those festivals like they do them here in AR, regardless of the city. AR people are so proud to be Americans.. I know a lot of people, in many states are, but there is something about the patriotism in this part of the country that just feels right...

Your right not much to do in MH but you can drive to oklahoma to the casinos there. We went last weekend was a blast and won a little also. If you want a hour and 1/2 drive go to Branson Mo a lot of shows and parks and some good shopping at the landing. And just about any kind of food.
