Question Moving to TN

I'm planning on moving to TN in June after my daughter graduates from HS. I'm moving from a small town NE of Dallas. I have found several older homes in Portland. Can anyone tell me anything about this area. I'm going to be a single mom with 2 boys coming with me. Any help would be most appreciated. Also any info on schools and churches

Default portland

We have moved to Portland just about six months ago. We have two boys and are just signing up for little league. If you look up Portland TN the website can give you a great deal of information. The Middle school is very strict. The area is close the the KY border where there is a Walmart to shop at. The food is taxed here in TN. The parks are nice and very large, football is BIG here. They do have a skatebord park. There is a curves, and a 24 hour a day fitness club, we just joined. Two grocery stores a McDonalds with a playland, a Sonic an Arby's and a few others. Several gas stations, and banks doctors and dentists. Someone whom we know toured the winery was dissapointed. Lots of farm land, many churches, a produce stand on S. Russel St. near 52 open most of the summer. The city is growing, and anything west of the tracks I have heard is the right side, of course we are on the wrong side. We are only renting we hope to buy in a year or so. Good luck to you on your move. I hope this was helpful.
