Hohenwald Reviews

The town is in many ways trapped in the past. Very republican, and not shy about it. Many people are racist, and not shy about it. You cannot drive to the bank without seeing about five confederate flags. There are more churches than you could easily count, and Walmart is deserted on Sunday mornings. The school system is weak and does not adequately prepare students for college. In fact, being intelligent is often looked down upon here. The community park is a hub for drugs and underage smoking during the day, and at night you have to watch your step for couples taking advantage of dark corners. Gas typically runs ten to fifteen cents more per gallon than the surrounding counties. Everybody knows everybody else or their momma, and if you didn't grow up here you're the new kid.

Great small town to live in. Everyone knows and cares for each other. The businesses are not many but they are enough to keep our town alive.
