I was raised in Gibson County. Attended a great high school, people are friendly and ready to help when needed. Schools have changed a lot since I went but are good overall. We have great safety cops, both local and county wise that are always there when needed. We have no places to have nightlife which is good in this day and age. We have plenty of health care services all over the county. Lots of houses for sale. A lot of people commute to Madison County which is the biggest city near us. That's where you find your nightlife if you want it. They have all the health care you could ask for. Gibson County is a great county to grow up in and live the rest of your lives. I love it!

I live just outside a small town but I am not far from a more cosmopolitan area and all that affords. The small town atmosphere makes me feel at home and the distance from bigger cities is doable for my family. Movies, ballgames, live theatre, concerts, science centers.
Trenton has a few factories, but there are also a lot of small businesses that employ people. We have a variety of small clothing boutiques that are popular. However, we don't have stores like American Eagle or Macy's. We have several "mom-and-pop" shops but we also have Sonic, McDonald's, and Hardee's. You can pretty much get everything you need here in Trenton, but most people still drive 45 minutes to Jackson to go shopping.
