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.

Greeneville is a beautiful town in rural east Tennessee. If you are an outdoor enthusiast, then this town is right for you. The Appalachian mountains are right at your doorstep. There is also an abundance of lakes and rivers in the area. The schools are great, and Greeneville High is a cut above most schools in the area. Your never more than a 45 minute drive from larger cities, such as Knoxville, Morristown, Kingsport, and more. It isn't without its drawbacks though. The drug presence in the area is considerable, and it lacks in diversity. All in all though, its a great town to live.
Id lived in the surrounding areas for 8 years now. Overall, its an affordable rural/suburban community surrounded by beautiful mountainside. There plenty of jobs and a great place to settle down and raise children. However, it could have more activities and places to do for fun.
