I'm not sure if mcminnville would be considered east or middle TN?

I'm not sure if the general TN forum is best or if this would belong in a sub forum.

What is it like? How does it compare to places like Cookeville or Erwin?

I'm trying to narrow down some areas of interest to focus on and I came across a few youtube videos and it seems like a nice well kept up small town.

How are the schools? What is the town like? What is the elevation of the area it looks to be on the plateau?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

It's not on the plateau.

The largest employer in McMinnville (Carrier) shut down a few years ago and put 2,000 people out of work. The town hasn't recovered, and it was already poor before that. It's mired in chronic unemployment, poverty, and drugs. Lousy schools. The downtown is quaint, but the rest of the county just looks they've given up. The only shopping in town is Walmart. You'll probably head to Murfreesboro or even Cookeville for shopping and entertainment. But McMinnville does have Cumberland Caverns which is really neat.

Thanks again. Cookeville seems far superior in pretty much every metric then.

Mcminnville downtown seemed really nice and real estate seems very reasonable as well I had wondered if I stumbled upon a hidden gem.

I don't want to hate on McMinnville but I would guess you would prefer living in Cookeville.

Cookeville has a midsize state supported university which helps keep the economy humming. And the location is more scenic than in Warren County.
