Batesville Reviews

37 reviews
All Categories
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.
Review Batesville
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.
Batesville Indiana is a quiet small town with the same atmosphere. I would live back in Batesville if I had to, its a great small town. The only thing that can bother me about it is that everybody knows everyone and rumors spread rather quickly, even if they aren't true. Compared to the rest of the country, I would say that Batesville is average in terms of quality of living and comfort. I see the future of Batesville going from a small town with a lot of agurcultural ties to it being more city dominant.
