We moved to Cedartown looking for that small town vibe and we found it! Charming people, beautiful parks and history. This is a place to raise a familu! Like every town there are pros and cons one con would have to be the dilapidated buildings. But from what I hear they're revitalizing mainstreet and working to correct that issue. They have the opportunity to bring in young families and make this place a great town as long as they take care of their schools and teachers. Also holding more activites for the community! It's only 1hour from atlanta and 20 from Rome so you get the country atmosphere without feeling isolated. We are so glad to have moved here and. I believe this town will see
more growth and revitalization in the next decade!

I grew up in Cedartown, and it wasn't until I moved to Athens for college that I could give an accurate review of the town. I will begin by saying that it wasn't a terrible place to grow up. The small town vibe and the ability to know someone at each place you went was quite charming actually. I grew up with the same friends for 18 years. However, there are a few downsides that are worth mentioning. 1) Many places in town are very run down and an eye sore - even worse that most of those places are found at the entrances to town. 2) There are very few dine-in restaurants to choose from (BUT Zorbas is incredible and I will never not go when I am home). 3) Very limited job opportunity. 4) Has proven to have a good bit of crime in the bad areas of town here lately. 5) Kids in the public school system would have to T R Y to fail. From personal experience, they don't get you ready for college.
It’s a great place to live. It’s a small town with a big heart. There’s a movie theater, parks and recreation. There’s tons of church’s and most people are friendly. I’ve lived here for 25 years and loved every moment I’ve shaded with my family here.
