I've lived in Calhoun for many years, and it is a great town to live in! It is located in McLean County, Kentucky, we used to have a grocery store, but now it is being turned into a church. So come on down to Calhoun!

I have been living in Calhoun, KY, it is a great city and it has many public schools, it is very safe, the nightlife is excellent, It is very family-friendly, it has a very healthy lifestyle, but their is barely any job opportunities, so Calhoun is a very great city/town to live in. My experience with Calhoun is very fun.
Its a tight-nit community that has deep roots in religion and family. The county has no grocery store and has few things to do but I still enjoy living here.
