My experience with South Fulton, Tennessee is a positive one. I could not imagine sending my son to school in the Jackson Madison County School System. South Fulton seems safe, inviting to anyone of any age. Just married and feel like settling down? Buy a home in South Fulton, TN where your children can grow up with the best education the public school system has to offer. There are also Christian schools in Martin, TN. If you are ready to retire and just want to fish and read books, then South Fulton, TN is your ideal destination of retirement away from busy city noise. Have you heard about the black panther in Obion County? Keep your eyes peeled for a black panther that recently made headline news in Las Vegas and every other major city in the US. Quite surprising for such a small town. Just remember to always keep a lid tightly on your compost.

South Fulton is an okay place to live if your looking for somewhere very quiet, slow, and very friendly. A great place to raise a family but hardly and jobs here. Nor do we have a lot of resources to offer the youth of this community. I really wish that we could receive help or something to help our communities out because we are a twin state with Fulton, Kentucky and both are pretty much the same.
I have lived in South Fulton all my life and I can say it's... ok. The main draw of the town is that it is a calm place were nothing never really happens. This is an up side for some and a down for others. It's good in the sense that it's safe and affordable. Great for anyone just wanting to live life with out much worry. The draw backs is the small size really limits the amount of things one can do here. Just recently the town add a walking lane , a fountain, and a jungle gym. This is the closest thing to we have to a park. I don't think it's a great place for growing up in ,trust me, but for the ones who have simple aims in life or want a quiet place to retire to, this is it.
