Ok, just found out the house we are getting is in Cynthiana.

Can anyone tell me what grocery stores, restaurants and stores are in this town?


I realize the bigger stuff will be in Lexington, (how long does it take to get there?) but are the necessities in Harrison County?

Will I have to leave the town to go out to dinner or to the doctor?


As crazy as it sounds, we are taking this house without seeing it due to time restraints. So I am freaking just a little, ok MORE than just a little.

One last question: How are the schools?

Thank you all SO much!!

I've been through there several times and it's a pretty little town. However, just like all small rural towns, there isn't that much there.

They do have a nice web site.

Cynthiana Online

Especially the list of members from the Chamber of Commerce.

Cynthiana Online (http://www.cynthianaky.com/chamber/members.htm - broken link)

You might also look at their newspaper to get an idea.

It has a business directory.

It is a pretty nice town, the downtown area is quite large for a town of its size with alot of historic buildings.

Most of the shopping is off US 27 just South of Downtown, has most of the common chain restaurants.

Georgetown KY is about the same distance as Lexington. There is alot of shopping areas there.

Demographic info from Wikipedia:
The median income for a household in the city was $28,519, and the median income for a family was $34,691. Males had a median income of $27,704 versus $20,659 for females. The per capita income for the city was $15,227. About 13.3% of families and 16.1% of the population were below the poverty line, including 23.1% of those under age 18 and 11.7% of those age 65 or over.

Mike 2878 doesn't know anything about Cynthiana. Not content to simply bash Berry he has to bash Cynthiana as well. He gets all his info from online newspapers and thinks he is an expert. Harrison County is a good place to live. If you live in Cynthiana it takes about 45 mins to get to Lexington, going either Paris Pke, or Russell Cave Road. All your necessities can be obtained in Cynthiana. There was a time when there were a lot of tobacco warehouses in Cynthiana, but thanks to our elected officials cutting tobacco bases in the region most of the agriculture/industry from tobacco is gone. It is a "wet" town, meaning you can be booze there. The school system is excellent. There were four elementary schools in the county(Eastside, Westside, Northside, and Southside).
Don't listen to Mike 2878, he is uninformed and hysterical.

Harrison Co. was consistently in the 90th percentile. Mike 2878 doesn't know anything about cynthiana/harrsion county/berry. Trust me. He's like a little child that wanders in the middle of a conversation and starts repeating stuff he's heard.

Cynthiana is a small town with great real estate prices.. only 15 mins. to Interstate 75 in Georgetown..not a bad town to raise a family and the crime is not out of control.. it is a buyers market right now if your looking to buy real estate..there a some treasures in this small town..nice folks too..neighbors that will look out for each other. Lexington is not a long drive at all for the bigger town feel and culture. Cost of living is below average. I guess it all depends on your needs and what you are looking for. With todays economy cost of living and affordable housing is very important.
