I am possibly moving to Dover Nc. Does anyone know anything abut this community? Any websites that would tell more about the area?

If you live there, do you like it? What's the best and the worst thing living in Dover.

The area of COMPANY RD, in Dover is my main concern. The crime rate there? What type of community?

I know it has about 400 people... but are they nice? My wife is freaked out!
We have a great deal offered to us, we just wonder why its such a Great Deal!

Thanks Any help is appreciated!

I used to live about 30 miles from there in Greenville NC.
It is really just a wide place in the road. For most anything you do, you will need to drive to Vanceboro, Kinston or Greenville.

Thanks....

Hows the job market in the area? I currently work in AV installs and have worked in TV. I would love to get back in to TV, but I am sure Dover probably is MILES from any TV stations?

As far as I know, the closest is the station in Greenville.
For that kind of work, you might do better down toward Wilmington with the movie studios. Don't know if that kind of work in unionized in NC, like in LA.
With a population of less than 500, Dover ain't got much in the way of media.

Dover is miles away from anywhere! Greenville, New Bern and Kinston are fair sized towns. I'm sure the folks down Dover way are just fine.

You are moving to Dover, on purpose? While I live in Snow Hill which is about 40 miles to the west of Dover and really have no room to talk about living in the boondocks, I can't envision moving to Dover anymore than I envision someone moving to Snow Hill on purpose unless they have family there, were born there or married someone that was born and raised in either place. If it is possible, I believe Dover is smaller than Snow Hill but it certainly is in the same bracket. You will have to drive to Kinston or New Bern probably to get any thing like you would buy at a Walmart and perhaps even groceries. The Eastern Area of North Carolina is dotted with small towns that are miles from the nearest hospital and shopping centers. And if you love the privacy and can come to grips like I have lived with all my life the inconvenience of having to drive about 15 miles one way to get to the grocery store or even getting a pizza, then you might like it. Small town people are usually really nice but a lot of them are suspicious of people that move into the area without family ties to the area. It will probably take some time to adjust but I hope you really see this place and think long and hard about it before you move there and find out that it really isn't what you wanted at all. But if you are use to small town living, you won't have that much to adjust to.
