Seeking to move to Dade County, GA around November -- way-y-y out in the middle of nowhere, hopefully "in the valley" (lower elevations, warmer climate); around Trenton or Rising Fawn, but "in the county" (not in city limits, as I farm).

Wondering what the character of the area is like, particularly with regard to crime & drugs & youth gangs? We have tons of violent crime where I live now in my hometown in central NC, which is why I'm moving. Hoping to move to a place where I don't have to lock my doors at night! AND away from the city lights and the barking dogs and the cars and the trucks and everything other than beautiful quiet serene peaceful tranquil private lonesome NATURE. I'm talking about the private relaxing sort of place where I have to get in my truck and drive several miles in some direction to see another human being.

Input/thoughts from people who live in Dade Co.?

Hey Southernfarmer. I'm from Dade County. To let you know, it is a very nice place to live. Small town vibe and friendly people. Low crime rate as well. If you're looking for more of the "country" vibe, Rising Fawn would probably be a better place than the middle of Trenton. There isn't really anywhere you can live in Dade County where you would have to drive a few minutes to see anyone, but there are sparsely populated areas, ie. Rising Fawn. Either mountain, Sand or Lookout, are also good areas to look for places to live. However, like I said Rising Fawn is probably the best bet for the vibe you're going for.

You have to drive a good 10 minutes or more to get to Trenton. You also might want to look into what we call Back Valley. Once you get down the road there, it is probably even more sparsely populated than Rising Fawn. Overall, its a very beautiful area. The mountains are gorgeous at all times of the year and there are genuinely good people there. Good luck on your move!

Short Version: Low Crime, nice people. Rising Fawn and either of the mountains are good "country" places to live where you can escape the sounds of traffic and people in general.

Rising Fawn is a real nice place. Beautiful. Country. But not too far from Chattanooga if you must go to the big city. Great people too.

It has been a long time since you posted this message. Hope you still participate in this forum!
We are researching NW georgia and NE Alabama area for retirement. We are planning to create a self-sustainable organic farm. We are trying to locate away from towns (even the small ones), as it will give us seclusion and we will be able to buy more land for our money.
What did you mean by "back Valley"? For outsiders like us, it will be good to know of this hidden treasure.
Would you have any opinions on retiring in Rising Fawn area Vs. Fort Payne area in AL?
What you said about Rising Fawn, "low crime friendly people" is that still valid? We are surprised to notice the number of sex offenders, rape and burglery reports in many small towns based on City-data info. We do not mean to offend anyone, just researching different areas and trying to find a safe place to live. Many thanks for your time.

Having just relocated to the Chattanooga area, I'm looking to move to a more rural area close to here, as well. However, I've heard ugly rumors about the Sand Mountain area being a so-called "sundown" area, and that outsiders are definitely not welcome there! I would love to hear some input from people more familiar with the area on this.

I'm curious, for Rising Fawn, what's the minority population and culture like there?
