Eastman is the typical small town in Georgia. People gossip about everything, but we love each other too. There is no such thing as privacy! Our school system is better than most of the others systems around us, and the food our schools serve is hot and tasty. Eastman has a diverse group of churches. Our middle school and high school sports teams are at the top of the pile. Jobs are hard to come by in Dodge county; many times employment has to do with who you are or who you know. Middle Georgia University is nearby, so that is helpful. The different ethnic groups get along. We are good people!

Living in Eastman my entire life has taught me that everybody really does know everybody in a small town setting. That is really good and really bad at times. There is always someone to call on when you need help or are in trouble, but people will always be in your business no matter what. This community always comes together if/when there is a tragedy, and that is why I love calling Eastman my home.
Eastman is a great place to raise kids if you are looking for a small town where they can make lifelong friends and have many opportunities to be involved in activities, sports, etc. inside and outside of the school system. The school system is wonderful with many great teachers that truly care about their students.
