Hello, my husband and I are moving to Starkville next year as an academic couple to work at the University. Our daughter who will be a sophomore in high school will be with us (our older daughters are in college). I need all the information about Starkville anyone can give us. We would like to live in a nice, older neighborhood close to campus. What's the high school like? Our daughter likes to sing, paint, and write poety, will there be any opportunities there for her to do those things? Are their any nice restaurants in town? What about wine tasting clubs or book clubs? If anyone has any information about what life is like in Starkville for those not in college I would greatly appreciate it.

Starkville has really experienced some growth in recent years - but it is mostly centered around the university. Nonetheless, I think it's a fun town to live and work in.

Where are you folks moving from?

I can direct you to several different realty sites or rental sites, depending on if you are planning to rent or buy.

The local newspaper is the Starkville Daily News
The city's website is City of Starkville, Mississippi - A Great Place to Live!
The chamber of commerce has some great information at Greater Starkville Development Partnership
And then of course there are tons of local links through the university's website as well.

I have much more to post about Starkville but time is limited at the moment. I'll get back to this post as soon as possible, but feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions I can help you with before then. I've lived in the Starkville and surrounding area for 30 years.

We're moving from Lafayette, LA, a city of about 200,000 in the metro area.

Lafayette has a very big arts and culture scene, which I think I'll miss the most. I'm just worried about it being a drastically different culture in Starkville.

If I lived in Starkville, I would want to live in the Greensboro Historic District. There are quite a number of very unique homes there that probably date from the 1930s through the 1960s. No cookie cutter stuff there. It's probably around 1 1/2 miles from campus. For a while, there were several homes on the market there, but I haven't been over there for a few months.

Dunno. If I were you I would call or email a Starkville realtor to see if there is even anything available along Greensboro.
