Talk about a small town! I really like the area, although it's true, one stoplight. The little town is charming, and is located not to far from the Lincoln County Fairgrounds. It's close to Danville, Somerset, and Lancaster. In the summer, they set up a flea market at the drive-in theater during the days, and show movies at nights (yep, been there, done that!) That little flea market is actually a common stop for us during our antiquing trips! Most of the houses in the area tend to be the early 1900's style HUGE homes, but at real affordable prices. Wal-Mart and Krogers is right up the road, as well as a few restaraunts and shops. If you want small town living-this is it! The little town makes Mayberry look huge!

No kidding, it's a real nice place, especially since the new bypass connects now. No longer do you have to drive 100 miles to an interstate! ~joanna~

I was born and raised in Hustonville and have no worries about living there. It is a small community, away from everything, but at the same time close enough to larger towns. If I can be of any help, please email me at deonica_a@hotmail.com

I have been in the Hustonville area most of my life. I attended Elementary School here from Kindergarten through the 8th grade and now I am a teacher here. I think it is a wonderful place to live. The community is small and peaceful, yet close to larger cities like Louisville and Lexington. We are only 3 hours from Cincinnati and Knoxville. Being centrally located is great for culture and being involved with things you enjoy. Danville is only 10 minutes away and offers a variety of wonderful things. I even know of a "wonderful home for sale"
