Pelham Reviews

If you love small town living, then you will love Pelham, GA. I love knowing that people in the community will help one another without being asked. I had a flat tire and didn't know how to remove the tire from under the truck and received help from two local people walking by. They need a place to shop for groceries.

I am a current resident in Pelham. I stayed in country where it's not that much noise. It's peaceful where I live, that's the reason I stay in Pelham, to be honest. The line of work needs to be changed in Pelham. There is no really good job opportunities in Pelham, most people have to find work outside the city of Pelham. So, I would have to say that needs to change and if you do end up with a job in Pelham it doesn't pay worth anything.
I like that my family is here, and it is a quiet town. I don't like the benevolent racism, and there is nothing to do here.
