Hello, I live in Ardmore, Oklahoma Southern Oklahoma! I am wondering about Kilgore, Texas because my Dad found a job there and we May move there.

I looked information on it and it said i think its in the piney woods? I heard there are alot of trees and hills. But this is my last year of high school so i dunno how soon we may move, i think might finish high school here and then go to college there are somewhere.

I would like to know information also about longview does it have good stuff that kilgore doesn't have becuz its a small town?

I wonder about Longview also. Said we may move there. But id be better at Kilgore cuz its a smaller town. So, i would like some information on these 2 towns and if ya live there it would be great so i would know about the town. Thank you. We may or may not move... time will tell. Oh yeah could you maybe give me a link on good housing deals if ya would... My mom was thinking about looking around.

Since you live in Ardmore, you will find the Kilgore/Longview area similar. Just a little different in geography.

Poltracker is right. There won't be any real difference in the people, (less Indians though) but the terrain is a lot more heavily wooded. It's the oil patch, so you've got that too.

Additionally, there's a fine college there where you could get your basics out of the way while you decide what you really want to do.

Longview is only a few miles away and it has all the shopping and entertainment you'll need. As for employment? I really can't say about that, but it'll be dependent upon the oil fields.

When I lived in Longview we always said "Kilgore is not the end of the world... but you can see it from there!"

That's funny. When I lived in Tyler I used to call Longview "Longface" (Because it makes people sad).

I don't get what Kilgore Tx with a pop of 12,000 has to do with Pittsburgh whose pop. of 2.3 mill. 's air pollution.
Dallas and Houston made the top ten list for amount of photochem. smog-but that wouldn't prevent me or lessen my desire to visit either city.
