Batesville Reviews

All Categories
I have grown up in Batesville and overall it has been a wonderful place to live. It is one of the few towns left in the world that resides in a dry county. Due to that fact, the litter is reduced to a minimum and the drunk and disorderly charges are few. The White River runs through the middle of the mountainous town providing for hours of entertainment and scenery. A nice place to live generally, I only wish the chicken factories didn't create as many unpleasant smells on occasions, and there were more industries.
Review Batesville
You need an option for GED's otherwise it is excellent and appears to be user friendly! I just entered my information and already I'm applying for scholarships.
Batesville is a small town gossip central. Unfortunately the drugs have taken over there, but it would improve alot if the town had more things available to do.
