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.

Very beautiful, low crime great place for children. 2 excellent colleges in town. Everything is very close . Not many resources but more jobs seen to be coming each year. My kids love it, I love it. You got city and country life here. Best of both worlds!
Greeneville is a wonderful old town. Downtown is historic in nature, buildings, character and the home of Andrew Johnson. A great place to grow up with a real hometown feel!
