I'm moving to Kentucky. I want out of this town in the worst way. It's not worth all the pain. It's not worth the constant fear. I hate it here. I went to Kentucky once. It's far enough out of state I can be happy. But close enough, I can still visit my family on holidays.

Anyone with any info on Salem, Ketucky.. Let me know. Thanks.

I dont know where salem is but KY is not as bad as most people lead others to believe. The cost of living is a little bit higher in the northern part of the state, but isnt bad at all compared to other places. Let us know how things turn out.

Move to the western part of the state if you come here...things are cheaper for some reason over there and jobs are pretty easy to find.
It is beautiful in the "Land Between The Lakes" area. My hubby and I are moving there...we will miss Danville, but at least we are getting to move to a beautiful area.

Hi bethykay32, I live 10 miles from Salem, Ky It is a very small town but has all the needed small stores, banks, Hospital and several churches. You would be appox. 25 miles from Paducah, Ky which is a much bigger town most people go there for Doctors and shopping. Western Ky is a great place to settle even though jobs are very few around here. I wish you luck where ever you choose to settle....

Default Boring is a gross understatement...

I lived the first 23 years of my life in Salem, Ky and let me tell you what a tragedy it truly was. No doubt the serenity is priceless and matchless, however, it's a backwards town, it's slow to technology, slow-paced, jobs are hard to come by - actual CAREERS are non existent. It's frustrating, and while I am grateful for the childhood memories I have of growing up as a small-country-town girl, as an adult, the last 4 years, where I've made a life in a large Florida city have been the best years of my life.

I drive through Salem from time to time. That's on U.S. 60, among all those big cities between where I live in Sturgis and Paducah...Burna, Smithland, Ledbetter. There's some beautiful countryside in the area. Salem is one of those small towns that is far enough from all the traffic of the cities but close enough to go there if you need to.

Hello:
Sorry, you've had to go through so much pain, but; God will make you stronger through it.
We are selling our home and not sure if you would like to consider it. It's not in Salem, it in Horse Country, Frankfort, KY. 3171 Steele Branch Road, 9.40 acres, House, Barn, Farm Equipment, backs up to the KY River. It's on a dead in road, very private and nice area. My husband is ill and we need to downsize. We are asking pay off of $204,000. Call (502) 803-5998 if interested. BW
