A great bedroom town to Greenville. #thatGreenville.
Has a few chain restaurants, a few really good independent ones, and very low crime. Growing rapidly and hopefully will get more stores than the only one Walmart. Good doctors and new medical treatment facility. Even has a Technical School branch for Tri-county Tech.

Powdersville is a nice little town that can also branch into multiple other towns and cities. Everything you need is right in our town and if you want to go out and do something else, were close enough to other places and cities for you to do it.
I have been in this area for 2 years, after 3 years of travel nursing, trying to find a place to call home. I believe this is it. Very good area. Ease of shopping, medical, dental and optical. Nice people, centrally located for family activities.
