Raleigh County Reviews
The community overall is above average for an older couple, newlyweds, or a family. Bachelors and single people as well as teenagers however, typically do not enjoy the environment.
There are many great things about the town, such as the privacy and secrecy. However, the community is very diverse and not very close knit. The crime rate is rising and the support for local sports is falling at an astonishing rate. Making it hard to be a happy teenager in this area.
The economy here is rough. Unemployment is rising due to drug abuse, criminal activity, and dropout rates. Beautiful state. Wonderful community groups. The state needs to find more resources for income because coal will not last forever.
