I have lived in many states and many different cities within those states. I have seen small towns barely able to get by, and I have seen some small towns provide an environment of home and peace. Greeneville, TN has an overall aroma of peace and unity. Every single individual you meet is smiling with a caring nature to their presence. From hospital employees to middle school teachers to Walmart cashiers, they all carry themselves with confidence and ease that shows me how great a town can thrive when all the citizens are open to newcomers, are open to new experiences, and are closed off to hateful words and actions. I could see myself staying here long term.

Greeneville is nice. I like that it isn't overpopulated. The town would be a lot nicer if some of the empty buildings in the historic downtown were renovated, or at least occupied. The city continues to expand, while so many buildings are just sitting around not being used. The scenery and views of the mountains are breathtaking in some areas. People in Greeneville are friendly, for the most part. There is a wide Christian community that offers an abundance of help for ones in need. There aren't very many jobs to be found here, but due to expansion, business continue to open proving new jobs every year.
Greeneville is a small town. There is so much beauty throughout greene co that it's breath taking. In the falls the mountains looks like a bowl of fruity pebbles. THey are creeks and rivers to float down. The people are always there to lend a helping hand in time of need. When tornado's swept thru and made a lot of people homeless everyone pitched in with the clean up, gathered food and clothings, and even rebuilt some homes for the people. If your looking for a place to call home, and like to feel the mountain air where the people are friendly then make Greeneville your hometown.
