Living ina small town where we are all connected has its good and bad points no matter where you live , but Ripley does have that safety factor that somehow makes the minor “ bad” worth it. Crooked police departments are gone now, we hope... but who knows, right?

I love living in Ripley, Ms. I have lived here all my life and plan to continue to stay here. I love how it is a small country town where I feel safe to be home by myself. I love the experience of living on a small country road surrounded by my entire family.
It's a very lovely and safe small town. Everyone here makes you feel welcome. If you go to the grocery store you'll always end up seeing someone you know. The town of Ripley has a great school too. The teachers are very helpful and they always try to help in any way they can. I've lived in Ripley pretty much my entire life. I love it.
