Henderson County Reviews
I live in Henderson County and I love the overall safety. We are a close-knit community where everyone knows everyone. Jobs are mainly factory work, our community if full of manufacturing of some type. The change I would like to see is a better choice of restaurants. If you want to go to the mall or a good restaurant you have to go over the KY bridge. We are right on the state line of Evansville IN.
Henderson is very small rural area. It only has one high-school, and two middle schools and one catholic school. Most jobs in this area are nurses, doctors, lawyers, local own businesses. Henderson is literally 10 miles from Evansville Indiana. The Ohio River separates the two cities. Henderson does have its perks though, we have several bluegrass festivals downtown. It also has a great riverfront view. Over the past few years Henderson has added chained food industries to the area. Living in Henderson we are close to several other cities. Nashville, Indianpolis, St. Louis, Louisville, Lexington, no more than a 3-4 hour drive. I've gone up to Nashville several times for the day and drive back the same day. It's not a bad place to live if you like small towns.
There isn’t a whole lot to do, but’s it’s very homey and I love it! It has all of the necessities of Walmart plus restaurants and anything you could need living a simple life.
