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!

Eastman is a small country town, but it is a nice place to raise kids. Eastman is also a safe place. It has a great community and the community really sticks together.
