Shelbyville is a small town but with great people throughout the community. The town might be small but in my perspective very united with one another. It has a very friendly environment where everyone is constantly helping each other depending on the case. Our community is always going out there way supporting us, such as in schools. For example, for the most part local businesses are willing to sponsor our sports in our schools giving us a hand with raising money.
Small, quiet, friendly town. Country feeling town, new shopping areas and subdivision. Everything is within a short driving distance. Taxes and other county thing much cheaper compared to Nashville, Tn.
