Years ago we purchased a small piece of vacant land about a mile north of Eminence, but haven't been down there for 19 yrs. Anyone know anything about that area? All we know so far is what we read on the internet about the tubing and trail rides. Thanks!

It is covered by Centerytel Telephone services so you may be able to get DSL. Additionally, at least one ISP provides dialup there. I do not believe Wireless or other high speed solutions are available in that area at this time.

I grew up in Eminence. What else is there besides the rivers and the trail rides?!?!?
Seriously, what would you like to know?

I also wondered why someone would not use property all those years. I'm jealous.....I wish I had somewhere like that to go to in the southern part of the state. Eminence is such a pretty area. Wanna sell that property?

Default Just came across this thread: More on Eminence, please

I posted earlier on my own thread. But if you pick me up on this one, tell me more about Eminence. What is the climate like? Can you get land down by any of the rivers or with a small spring on it? Are there retirees in the area? I looks just beautiful and if you are obsessed with cold water springs as I am you would be in hog heaven. Been to Alley Mill? Could it possibly be as fantastic as the pictures? Let me know. If I owned property there I would build on it and live there in the warmer months. Yeah, some of you will say it is too hot and humid, but I am in Pensacola and the Summers there would be cool--especially if I were near some cool water.

I have been on those trail rides in Eminence..years ago..and have never forgotten the gorgeous views from tops of hills overlooking other riders heading up. The landscape is just heavenly. Would LOVE to live in that area..i am a country person and Eminence would be MY hog heaven.

There's no economy to speak of, other than canoe rentals and logging. If you're retired, in good health, and love the outdoors it may be for you. It's a long ways to the doctor or dentist. It's tough to beat the natural beauty and the cool, clear spring fed rivers, but you will get bored if you get tired of canoeing, hunting, fishing, or hiking.

Default Dreaming of Shannon County

I grew up in Missouri, worked seven years in the south central counties. My fondest memories are of Shannon County; lady slippers in the spring, Aker's Ferry, Devil's Backbone, Owl's Bend, May apples, the smell of sycamores in the creek bottom, bullbats at dusk.

I've been living so far from there for so many years. My house is up for sale and I'm thinking serious about Alton, down south of you. Can you give me any news of the area?

Thanks for all the posts. Y'all done got me homesick.
