    Berlin Reviews

    1 review
    I love my town! It has been an excellent place to grow up and there is virtually no crime. My neighborhood is quiet and beautiful and the areas to hike, such as Mount Pisgah and Forty Caves, have magnificent views. I have never felt in danger in my town and the lack of industry is actually a plus as the natural beauty of Berlin has been preserved. I am also proud of the people in my town such as Barry Eager, who worked tirelessly, sadly in vain, to stop the Tennessee Gas Pipeline from ruining our landscape and town's natural beauty.
