I work in an even smaller town 30 miles Southeast of Mulberry. Mulberry is in a good location because you are close to Tampa, Lakeland, and not too far from Orlando. I'm not really a fan of the town though. It looks really rough to me and stuff. It used to have a really negative stigma of being blighted and everything covered with phosphate dust. It is not so bad anymore but has a long way to go. The local Police Department disbanded a few years ago and is now served by the Polk County Sheriff's Office.

I lived and taught in Mulberry for several years and never heard this. I found the area to be quite diverse with welcoming people. I agree that it does look rough but the people more than make up for that.

I've lived in Polk County for almost 70 years and Mulberry, for a long time, was not a town you thought about relocating to.....it has come a long way. Since S Lal is moving out so rapidly, they are very close to each other. My daughter and g-kids live in DeerBrook. I like that area in S Lal and Mulberry.
