Blountville is a small town if you're not careful; you may drive right through it without realizing it. Blountville has been my home since the day I was born and it is my comfort zone. However, the cozy small town can be quite boring after awhile. There is not too much excitement within this town. Between seeing children, even adults, walking up the main streets of Blountville playing Pokemon Go, to the new and improved Rocket Diner established within the town; the town can be considered a safe environment. Do check your clock when arriving, because if it is past 9:00, the residents of Blountville have rolled up their mailboxes for the day!

Blountville is a community worth keeping, it still has that feeling of an older community where you know about everyone at the grocery store, but also has easy access to three cities for shopping, nightlife, or catching a NASCAR race. It is a community where the gentlemen still get their hair cut at the barber, you know all of your neighbors, and kids still play outside. The people that live in this community tend to stay and generations graduate from the same high school. It is a feeling that doesn't exist many places any more, but when your here you will know it's home.
I love living in Blountville, TN. It is a semi-small town right in the heart of the Tri-Cities. (Bristol, Kingsport and Johnson City) It is not small enough to know everyone and their mother. But you are sorta close to it, you may know someone’s Aunt, Uncle or cousin.
