I didn't notice any. I'm from So Cal so almost anywhere is an improvement, LOL. City Data shows an air quality index of 48.5 while the national average is 74.2 so the air quality index for Maysville is substantially better than the national average.
The city I'm from in So Cal has an air quality index of 112 which is substantially worse.

Maysville, the hometown of Franklin Soulsby, born in a cabin with no conveniences. He was one of the brave flag-raisers on Iwo Jima island, and the sole support of his mother. He was killed in combat soon after.

Maysville sounds interesting. My wife and I just visited Madison, IN downstream a ways. Really liked it, but maybe too spread out. Wondering how compact Maysville is and does it have most everything needed like a good choice of restaurants, a decent hospital, hopefully a multiplex theater? Just now discovering this region from southern Indiana over to West Virginia. We're looking for something nice, safe, and affordable with maybe a kind of unique factor. Will probably end up in West Virginia but will check out Maysville.
