Fork Mountain-Little Rock Creek Township Reviews
I have lived in Mitchell County, North Carolina my entire life, which has allowed me to experience the positive and negative aspects of this region. I've always found joy in growing up with familiar and friendly faces, being a part of a community that acts as a massive family. However, when the recession hit, there were quite a few families that had to relocate for employment. Industries like Henredon (furniture), Avondale (textile), and OMC (fabrication) left the area unemployed and desperate for work. Those companies employed most of the area at one point, and shutting their doors took its toll on Mitchell County. Many families moved to surrounding cities like Johnson City, TN and Asheville, NC. Since the recession, there has been growth in the arts and tourism industries. Galleries and attractions have grown steadily, giving this area a new lease on life.
I've always felt safe in this area, although the crime rate has slightly increased. There has never been any school violence or domestic terrorism. Most crimes include domestic violence, DUI, and drug related charges. Law enforcement in this area has been known for its lack of justice.
