Calhoun County Reviews

Calhoun County is a wonderful place to live. I have lived here all of my life and find it to be a pleasant place to live. An area that is growing and provides opportunities for families and students alike. It is surrounded by other larger cities such as Birmingham and Atlanta. These are just a short drive away.

Alot of young gang violence.
It's just a small town with nothing to offer.
