It's a small town of friendly people. The downtown area needs more renovations. The town needs more eating places. It needs to do something about the school system, the children are not getting the education the should and the crime rate is up.

Humboldt, TN is a friendly oriented town in Western Tennessee. The host an annual strawberry festival which is attended by residents of near by towns. It is also close to Jackson and health care.
Not a lot to do to stay busy, people are fairly friendly. There are new businesses being built, hopefully this will help the town flourish a little.
