It's a very quaint small town where everyone knows everyone. With only three fast food restaurants and very little in the form of entertainment or shopping, most people must travel a minimum of 30 minutes for activities. Still, crime is fairly low and Emory gives off a very safe environment.

Emory is a small town, where everyone know everyone. Nothing changes around this town. Only the popular last names get anything.
I grew up in Emory and I love the small town atmosphere. Everyone knows everybody when you go in public. You constantly have people that are looking out for you everywhere you go in this town.
