My family currently lives in Northern Kentucky, right below Cincinnati. I grew up on a farm and loved it here. However, cities and subdivision are taking over what used to be the rural areas and farms. I am not much of a city person with being raised on a farm. We are trying to find a place to move to that's more of a small town/rural area. We would like to find acreage to build on and keep our horses and other small farm animals on while also being able to take that short drive to "town" but with the "town" being a small one...the type of small town where everyone is close and help each other out. Not a city with large corporate stores and franchised restaurants. More of the mom and pop shops and family-owned businesses. We currently have small children and would like them to be raised in a nice area where they are not exposed to all of the drugs and crime. I recall being able to walk into town with other kids without parents having to worry about high crime. Everyone knew everyone and everyone showed respect to everyone and helped each other whenever needed. These are the types of people and values/morals that we want to raise our family around. Any suggestions on these types of towns would be greatly appreciated. I know it may be a long shot to find a place like you see on these shows where everyone around the town is wonderful and like a huge family...but anything that is close to this would be wonderful! Thanks to everyone in advance!

I would look in the Vine Grove/Flaherty area down in Hardin and Meade counties. Even with a big expansion at Ft. Knox nearby it shows no sign of losing a small town status.

Henry/Trimble/Carroll stay close to I-71 go to Cincy, go to Louisville, buy groceries in Campbellsburg, Carrollton, LaGrange. All three have decent school systems, close to medical, yet you can see the stars at night.

Do not think for a moment there is any county of Kentucky safe from Meth or marijuana. It's there, everywhere.

There are good churches in all three counties which will help raise your kids with the proper social skills
