Batesville is my home town and I love it, but I wish there was more diversity here. Batesville Indiana is very safe and has a welcoming, family friendly, environment. It is quit small, but that is one of the things I love about it. Everyone knows most everyone somehow, or understand the relations between people at least. The public schools are all very well rated and I think the city takes education very seriously. The people in Batesville are very nice, but I am not super sure on the cost of living or the real estate market. From what I can tell, those are both very good.
Review Batesville
I have been raised in Batesville for the vast majority of my life, and it Batesville is in my opinion one of the better examples of a small town in the nation. With excellent schools, a wide variety of food, and a quiet, small town atmosphere, Batesville is a great place to raise a family. The town also boasts more business opportunities than would be expected, as the town boasts several headquarters of international companies and a strong cadre of thriving local businesses.
Batesville is a small friendly community in southeastern Indiana. I enjoy the small town feel and friendliness of the community. Like most small towns, there aren't always all the opportunities for jobs you would have in a larger city. The same goes for leisure time possibilities.
