Land would be easier to buy the further away from the coal mining areas of the VA border. Coal companies still own that land by the square mile, not much is available in small plots in private hands. But should be lots of houses available with the declining population.

I suppose the question is, do you want in town or out in the county. I would start out looking at Manchester, Pineville and Middlesboro. They're close to the Red Bird Mission and the road network from them are relatively simple (for the region). There are nice houses in all three, although Middlesboro probably had the most- this is for historical economic reasons- sometime read the history of the founding of Middlesboro, it's very interesting.

Further out is Barbourville, Hyden, Corbin and London. The road networks are more complicated from those towns to Red Bird. In good weather it's not a problem to make the drive, but in bad weather the drives can be harrowing.

I would go to various realty sites and see what is available in those towns, both houses in town and also land nearby. That will give an idea of what your options might be. Also use google maps street view to get an idea of the drive from Red Bird to those towns.

One thing I would caution you about if health issues are any concern at all, the hospital in Pineville is having financial issues and there were real fears awhile back that it was going to have to be shut down. I don't know if the problems have been fixed, although I haven't seen any stories about it the last little bit.

Also, I would suggest, I hope this is allowable, that you check out the website/roku/or various social media sites for WYMT, which is the local TV station in Hazard. Its news station is the one that does the most coverage of the southeast kentucky region.

Courtney saw Sarah today. Sarah was mildly concerned, because Courtney is ALREADY 6 months pregnant! She's due early December. Because she's nursing our 15-month old son, she wasn't getting periods, so barely noticed the changes in her body.

I have a friend who we met on a cruise who is an EMT in Harlan County. He has a Youtube channel, including videos of drive arounds, camping, hiking, etc. in that area you might like, to get information on the area.
