I was born and raised in La Grange so I must ask, why did you pick there? it's a one pony town (not even big enough to be a one horse town )

it is very rural and small and a nice town. I grew up in the country and love it because it's my hometown, but I'm not sure why anyone would purposely want to move there.

as for the plumbing jobs, I'm not sure. The entire surrounding area is also small town, so people are more apt to call on someone they know personally or someone recommended. Plus even though they're nice to home folk, they may not be so nice to an outsider.

Amen to this post. I live about 12 miles from LaGrange and if it is possible it is smaller than Snow Hill. I can't imagine anyone moving here or there on purpose unless they have family ties there. It seems on the surface like Snow Hill, one of those places that you have to have been born into or married someone that was born there. As to move there on purpose, I may as well stay where I am. If and that is a mighty big if, as good as I love small towns, the next one I move to will at least have a shopping center that I don't have to travel some 20 miles to get to.
