Thinking of moving to either Hendersonville or Cheatham County Kingston Springs due to great cost of living, and being somewhat rural and private. Anyone knows if the schools [elementary, middle or even high school] within these 2 places are comparable. I was told Indian Lake is great and a Blue Ribbon winner, what about Kingston Springs?

Hendersonville and Kingston Springs are both nice places, but I have a hard thinking of Hendersonville as being rural anymore.

I don't have an direct knowledge of the school systems. Generally, Sumner County would probably have the better overall school system.

Actually the wife likes the quietness of Cheatham county and near williamson county... not too far off and near Franklin and downtown not too far. Would a place like Cheatham county Kingston's springs appreciate in the near future. I know in any pockets of a county there are up and downs, advantages and disadvantages so I am uncertain.

Kingston Springs is a very desirable area and should appreciate in the future. Even though it's in another county, it has good access into Nashville because of I-40. Traffic is less to and from that area than some of the other major roads. It would certainly be nearer to Franklin.

By the way, my best friend lives in Kingston Springs. She could live anywhere she wanted to from Brentwood to Hendersonville and she chose Kingston Springs.

But I'm not trying to talk you into Kingston Spring and not Hendersonville. Both have some good points and some bad points.

Actually I like Hendersonville and the school. It is beautiful,near the lake or even in the lake... but the problem is this.... There is a fear of Flooding from Wolf Creek Dam.... if that happens it would flood most parts of Hendersonville seriously. I did some research and simple analysis and found that to be trust and a "Real" imminent danger in Hendersonville..... more so than Earthquakes in San Francisco. I hope I am not being overly on this... I like Hendersonville due to new shops lots of them and nice malls, nice homes [affordable]. I am not sure if I should be worried about the dam breaking one day. or should I trust the engineers more? But I am also favoring Kingston springs and another 2 other locations besides kingston & Hendersonville now.

BTW, in case you weren't aware of it, the Corps of Engineers have put the maps of what would happen if Wolf Creek fails online. They base them on three different scenarios I believe. I've looked at them but I didn't study them in detail.

And the repair work is underway. It will take several years however. They say eight years but since this is a government project, it'll probably take twelve years.

Should I be worried about this "Flooding" if I happen to make the move to Hendersonville ? I like Hendersonville as they have a incredible Magnet school there.

Is there one in CHeatham County Kingston Springs area? Appreciation is maybe better in Kingston or Hendersonville in the long run? I also feel that way in terms of simple cost analysis and ripple effects of the economics in Williamson inflows to Cheatham area.... not soon but gradual but I am learning like everyone else so I might be 100% wrong. On the other hand Hendersonville is also a nice place to be... I might drive up there this weekend.
