I am thinking of moving to a town where it is more "Southern" and smaller than here but not too far (my family is all here), where do you suggest?

Default You know we want you!

Check out Richmond, Berea, Lancaster, Danville. All good little towns, and Richmond seems to be growing leaps and bounds.

I have thought about Danville (my husband has worked jobs there bbut has said that it may be expensive) but am not sure about Lancaster. Where is that?

I've got a ton of family (100's of them) in Danville and the surrounding towns, I've never found it to be all that expensive when I visit. But then again I'm not shopping for property.

Thanks davart, I may have to check that out. It's only about an hour or so from here so we will probably just go down and see it for a day.

Lancaster is a town between Richmond and Danville... It's a nice little town. Danville is not expensive from my experience, but I rented there.. did not buy.... relatively cheap COL though compared to Lex., Louisville, or even Richmond for that matter.

Yep, Desiree, it really is an affordable little town. Lancaster is really close to Richmond and Danville, and also Somerset. It has the "town square", where you still see elderly gentlemen playing chess on Saturdays. This is also close to Herrington Lake, which provides plenty of fishing, boating, and water sports. It's also a hop, skip and jump from Harrodsburg, the oldest city in the state.

To be fair to all, I'll p.m. you the names of the realtors in the area. There are some listings with the Madison County Board of Realty, but the ones I'm sending are "homegrown" in the area.

We recently looked at a 4 br. 2.5 bath on a full basement (an absolutely stunning home) for $70,000. You can get a much nicer house in that area for what you would spend on a mid-grade house in Richmond, Lex., etc.

Hope this helps, and Missymomof3, the Garrard county schools are really good. A nurse in my family physician's office moved to Lancaster, just so her 2 kids could go to Garrard County schools! She's tickled pink, even with her drive to Richmond every day to work. She told me having happy kids, excellent teachers, and a nice community is worth it.

All the best,
~joanna~

E-Town or BG not on the list? Close to Louisville and both are pretty decent towns although I like BG more.

I have thought of E-town as well. I am more asking about towns I am not familiar with. Thanks though!

Have you considered Scottsburg or Corydon, Indiana? Those towns are very nice, and are both close enough and far enough from Louisville to be ideal for your stated needs.
