I've read your replies with interest and I like the fact that you tell the truth about the area in question. So I was wondering what you can tell me about Hustonville. I read that you thought well enough about Danville. So which would be the better choice? And what is the downside of each area? We're a married, childless couple in our 40's currently living in Philly and tired of the crime scene. I want to get a home with some acreage between us and the neighbors because right now our current ones (on all sides) are drug dealers. And, if by some dumb luck we end up with the same thing all over again, I don't want to be living right next door to them. Sorry to say but these neighbors have put me off to anyone living right on top of me. Also, what can you tell me about the job situation for each of these areas? How about shopping? I'm not too concerned about cultural happenings. We have that stuff here and we really don't use it. Right now I'd be happy with a slow, boring (no crime) lifestyle. Thanx!

Default Hustonville Vs. Danville

I have never been to Hustonville so I can't say. It is near Berea and Richmond, both of which are clean and prosperous. Richmond has a large university and all the crime that goes with it, however. As far as Danville is concerned, I don't think there are many places in the world that have the overall quality of life that Danville offers. It's clean, cultered, has a great small college, scenic, and convenient to Lexington. Danville would be an excellent choice. Danvile has good shopping for a city its size and the crime rate is as low as any place anywhere. It is small, traffic is a non issue, it's just a gem. The job situation is constantly improving because places like Danville are where people are realizing that they want to live. I think you should seriously consider it.

Thank you so much for replying! I've read alot of great things about Danville. It sounds too good to be true. But it's much more believable when I hear about it from someone who's been there. It does sound like it has everything I'm looking for but I don't need to live in a big city to have it. Now all I have to look for is my dream house.... Thanx again. So very much appreciated. J.

The problem with Hustonville is that it is a tiny little hamlet, way out in the boondocks. While I agree that Danville (approx pop 15k) is a nice town, Richmond (approx pop 32k) is much more convenient, has better healthcare access, and a laughably low serious crime rate. I am a former peace officer, and once lived on Boggs Lane. Come to Madison county, its a very nice community. PS: I've been to Philly- what a great place to go hunting for drug crime fugitives! Ugh!
