Blackville is a small community with very little options for food, entertainment, or anything else. Roadways and buildings are in need of repairs and upkeep. One of the only advantages of the town is housing the county's State Park.

While I love Blackville and it is my home town, some drastic changes need to be made. The business life is very poor, failing infrastructure with no funds to improve it.
I like that it’s small and not many people here. I would definitely add more food places and a better grocery store.
