I'm thinking of moving to Folkston for a job promotion. Can any residents tell me about it. I know it's a small town and services will be limited. I want to know what housing is like? Availibility? Resale?
Is it true that internet and cable service are non-existent? How about hospitals? Doctors?
Any info is appreciated. Thank you.

very sleepy town; not sure about the answers to your questions though. i would imagine internet and cable services are very limited. but its only 20 min from kingsland, and about 45 min to jax. so you're not completely cut-off from city amenities.

Hope you like trains. Check out youtube re: Folkston trains.

There is always satellite dish tv.

Are you considering living over in FL and commuting to Folkston? Have you compared the tax issues? If you have decent insurance, I'm sure you can find a physician in the area.

Good luck with this. In these rather grim economic and social times, living in a smaller community might be a great thing for you.
