I'm from Raleigh, NC and I'm on travel right now in Laurel. I've been here for around 36 hours now and had to get online and write something about this place.

This place is the most disgusting, God forsaken town that I've seen in a long time. Right now there are about 15 people, drunk, running around screaming a bunch of ebonic jibberish that is the poorest attempt to speak English that I've ever heard. I had to drive through some neighborhoods today and had 3 people stare me down, apparently because I'm driving a car, since they were all walking. I've never really hated any place, even where I was in Iraq, but this place is horrible.

As far as a historic district, this town's population is less than 20K, so even that can't possibly be far enough away from the filth that lives here.

No offense, but you're insane, and so is anyone else that would move here, especially after visiting.

kmill23, Good for you for choosing to live in Laurel. My husband and I, from Massachusettes of all places, bought his grandmother's house in Ellisville. Jones County is the friendliest, dearest place on the planet. Education-wise we have much in common with you. My husband is a retired EE PhD and I have a background in teaching and museum collections. My husband is a cyclist and used to travel all over for rides, but alas we are more than old enough to be your parents. We have two grown sons in distant parts who have even more in common with you. We have had our house for five years, survivied Katrina unscathed, and are now looking forward to giving up our Mass. residence and relocating to Ellisville permanently.

Thank you, miss eliza.

It sure is refreshing to hear some good things about Laurel. It's also nice to hear that people with similar interests and occupations as me can enjoy the town. I honestly am excited to move up there. We should be closing on our house May 28 (a week after our wedding :-D).

Every time I've been to Laurel recently (and I've been there quite often recently) I find something else I like about it.

I'm a big fan of coffee and quiet coffee shops, and I stopped by Signature Coffee House off of Central Ave. I really liked this place! I had a really delicious mocha, and the people were quite nice.
