I am looking for a place I can buy a house on acreage (at least 50) fairly inexpensively (<$300,000) and the Waynesboro area seems like a possibility. Can someone tell me what the area is like? Why is it so much cheaper than other areas? Thanks.

We are looking to move out of Florida and retire to live off the land and are also looking at Waynesboro, was hoping someone had replied to your post! Usually if property is inexpensive there are lots of reasons!

We did go visit the area recently. I was told the reason it's so inexpensive is that there are few jobs. I'm not sure how you are planning to live off the land, but I was also told that it may be hard to farm because the ground is very rocky. I think the land is suitable for cattle. I heard about a farm commune, but didn't visit it.

Go to the main Tennessee page, do a search for Waynesboro. You'll see several threads already about the area. Waynesboro itself is a small country town. Lots of farmland (and trees) although much of the farmland is cleared. Also look at Savannah, Lawerenceburg, Ethridge (an Amish community) and other small towns/communities in that area. Have you looked in realtor.com or unitedcountry.com for what you want? And if you haven't visited there, please do so before even thinking about moving. ONe of the reasons the property is less expensive is that the area is not economically progressive at this point. It would probably be a good time to buy because it seems half the people in Florida are now trying to move to TN, albeit most seem to be moving to East TN.

Could Waynesborold be in tornado alley?? I don't know but when I moved here I looked for areas that were in areas that had protection from the mountains.

Moderator cut: changed to "search" "Waynesboro, TN topo" and you'll see part of the reason; hilly and small, mostly timbered according to the topo Moderator cut: cut. The views from G. Earth confirm the topo maps.

Hello,
We are looking to relocate to your area. Currently we live in Ca. My wife grew up in Ms. and I grew up in western Mt. My wife will be retiring soon, and I have yet a few more years of toil left. We both have family about a days travel from your area. We are looking at Irwin Branch rd. Can you tell us what that area is like? Also, being from Western Mt., I am fearful of shoveling snow. I have been away from it for about 10 years and I feel my hands just won't fit the handle anymore. Any kind of information about the area will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
