This is a very small undeveloped town that is family friendly. It is a very small and southern area. The closest town is about 10 minutes away. There is no excitement or night life. There is only a water board, dollars general store, Greek restaurant and 2 gas stations.

I’ve lived here for three years, and I can say that if you’re moving here and are religious you’ll probably be able to find people. Otherwise you’ll be isolated, but the proximity to both Chattanooga and Knoxville is a blessing, and commutes are very straightforward: get on the highway or the interstate.
