I believe that Newbern is a great place to live. It has amazing schools, it is very family-friendly, and it is welcoming. Newbern has parks, a community pool, a golf course, and a walking route. It is a smaller town, but that doesn't mean that it lacks fun.

I have lived in Newbern all of my life. It is a fantastic place to live in my opinion. It is a small community where you can always count on your neighbors to help you when you are in need. Also, the local high school sporting events are amazing. Dyer County High School athletics is always guaranteed to put on a show.
I have lived and and gone to school in Newbern for 7 years. It is a great place to feel safe and call home.
