My husbands job will be placing him near the Ruston area for his job and we are wanting to live in Ruston, we are a young couple from Mississippi and would like to know the areas and neighborhoods in Ruston that are safe and filled with young families?

Thank you all in advance!

Essentially, anything north of I-20 is safe, as is most of the area north of California St (US Highway 80). West of the La Tech campus is also reasonably safe. You said you were from Mississippi, so I'll say north of I-20 is like NW Rankin County, perhaps a few neighborhoods could pass for a Madison-like place. The east side of Ruston can be sketchy in some spots, but there are still good houses in that area if you look hard enough. Avoid anything south of California St./ US 80.
