Why Lumberton (Robeson County)? You'll find many stories and history info. online.

People are rural for the most part, close to Fayetteville, NC, Ft. Bragg and I-95. Poor workin' class folk trying to survive in what was once a heavy farming and manufacturing area. Interesting history on American Indians there. Start with the Tuscorora (which I am a part of) if you have further interests. The "Lumbee Indians" (Lumber River) as some are claiming, have their own (not recognized) agenda.

The area has seen a VERY HEAVY influx of illegals in the past years. That's an entirely different topic so I'll just leave it at that.

Schools...Government, need I say more.

Crime...refer to last paragraph.

Work...depends on your skills. High paying jobs (LOL).

Corrupt politicians, high taxes, corporate greed and illegal immigration have N.C. by the throat and wallet.

there isn't a whole lot in lumberton. I wouldn't want to live there, but you should check it out for yourself.

The nicer subdivisions in Lumberton are good...would want to live in one if I had to live IN Lumberton. Red Springs isn't too bad. Public schools STINK! But Red Springs is home to Flora McDonald Academy (private schoo, Pre-K - 12th grade). Excellent school!

i lived there my whole life up to two years ago and i can tell you, it is a corrupt, drug-infested hell-hole. the crime rate is higher than new york city (per capita) and the police force is slacking. the gangs are horrible. but with all the bad, it will really teach you the value of life. i wouldnt suggest living there, but its your choice.
