I was born and raised here! It may be small, but I love it here! I am raising my daughter here! I have grown to love this place and all of its adventures. The safety is very great, its family friendly, the cost of living is not bad, the schools are smaller than big cities, but it works! There are many different job titles and openings all around. I have grown quite fond of my little country town.
Review Batesville
Batesville, AR is a medium sized town with more banks and churches you can count on both hands and feet. I've lived here through out most of my middle school, and high school years. The people are so welcoming and nice. Arkansans as we are called, will show you the most hospitality and respect a human being deserves. The Natural state (another Arkansas nick name) has the most scenic views and is a wonderful place to raise a family. Not to big but not to small.
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.
