Hello everyone. This is my first visit to this forum. My husband and I are looking to move out of California (I know... shocking, huh!) and possibly moveto Kentucky. We have been looking at places (via the internet) in Hustonville. If anyone could tell me anything about that area, we'd really appreciate it.
Also... if anyone would like to give their opinions of other areas, we're looking for small towns; not far from good shopping, but places that have lots of room (read: acres) where one can stretch out without looking at tract homes right in the backyard.

Any tips or advise/ opinions would be greatly appreciated. We're thinking of a trip back there this summer to really look around so your opinions would play a big part in planning our trip.

Thanks!

Well.......... glad we're not as "friendly" in California!

Glad to know, before we move, that KY is worse in it's welcoming of visitors than Cali is.

Think we'll take our money elsewhere. Obviously none of it is needed in KY.

Hmm,
I must have missed something between your first post and the last one.

I'm originally from the south, but lived in CA for ten years. We've lived in KY for five. I'm familiar with the area you're asking about. If you want to ask some questions, drop me an email a r_yaaresse (at) yahoo dot com
I can be more candid and informative via email than on an open board.
I check email every couple of days.

The KY forum doesn't always get very much action. This does not mean people here are not friendly...

I am not familiar with the area you are asking about. I have lived here for about 8 years and really like the Elizabethtown area. You can still get the type of property you are looking for around Elizabethtown/Rineyville/Vine Grove. You can also check Glendale, Litchfield, and Hodgenville. These are all small towns, some smaller than others, but you still have access to Louisville.

I have friends and family that have recently relo'd to the area and bought property (homes on acreage) in Bonnieville, Big Cliffty, Caneyville and other similar areas. They are all very happy with their move.

If you don't need access to a city as large as Louisville, there are a lot of smaller towns located outside Bowling Green too. Glasgow is not a bad drive to Bowling Green. Glasgow is not a bad town and it is growing a lot recently. Tons of develpoment starting to occur that way.

You can also look around Lexington. I really like Frankfort.

No offense, but I doubt anyone has heard of Hustonville, that is why no one replied. After a quick google search and a satellite image, it seems to be a one stop light town (if that) with a population of circa 200 in the middle of rural KY. So, no wonder no one replied, the chances that someone has ties to that area are slim to none. I know that the closest "decent sized" (I use that term loosely) town is Danville, which is a very nice, albeit it VERY small town. Hustonville is so isolated that it is almost a 100 miles to an interstate in every direction. I was just wondering how you chose that town? It may be utopia for all I know, but I cannot find much on the net about it. There are thousands of cities in KY that size. To give you an example, more people live on my single city block in Louisville than in all of Hustonville. So, I assure you, that we are very friendly here in KY

If you low cost land is your priority, then Hustonville is an ok area. If you want to be closer to the cities, try Eastern Shelby, Henry, or Franklin Counties (directly btw Louisville & Lexington, not far from Cincinnati) Land out there runs about $5000 per acre

Default Best areas in Kentucky

We moved here two years ago from Florida after searching for two years and decided on Breckinridge County, which is southwest of Louisville. We live in a small town outside of Hardinsburg and you can't find friendlier people, cheaper acreage or more beautiful property. We have 20 acres but feel like it is 1000 as we have no neighbors and it is so quiet and secluded, full of deer and turkey for neighbors.
