My family is eager to move "back east" from Southern Colorado. We have family in Murphy and Andrews, NC, and are trying to decide whether to look in Murphy, or in Ducktown. I need help with the pros and cons.

We have a 16 yr old son, so need to be where he can find work. He is home schooled, so we also need to be close to a local college or tech schools.

We were in Murphy in March, and looked around there, Hayesville, Franklin, Blairsville, totally missed Ducktown. The problem is I love the whole area and am not feeling led to one town or the other.

Any input will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Ducktown is just across the state line in Tennessee. There are only a few hundred residents and certainly no tech schools there. The closest tech school is probably tri-county community college in Murphy. I don't know if there is any out-of-state tuition increase if you do settle in Ducktown. For more info you may want to post in the TN forum, but some from Andrews/Murphy might be able to help you a bit more here...

We just purchased outside of Hayesville (in Warne) and believe we have the best of both worlds. Clay County (Hayesville) has all the schools on one campus as the county has less than 10,000 total. In addition, the hospital, Tri-County Community College, Super Walmart, etc are all within 15+ minutes.
