I believe Scott Depot, West Virginia is a great place to live. It is a small town, but it's growing at a steady pace, everyone knows everyone. It has a very low crime rate, there are a lot of job opportunities to come in the future too, because this city is growing at a steady pace. Each class that graduates from my school gets bigger and bigger each year. Being in Scott Depot, West Virginia, you get to experience all four seasons as if you were up north, but you also get to experience some southern hospitality as if you were in the south. It's right in the middle, it's awesome! You are surrounded by beautiful mountains and trees, but you are also only six to eight hours away from the beach.

Everyone is friendly in Teays Valley. The community is great, with a lot of activities to participate in. There is hardly any crime.
Grew up here for twelve years in the Scott Depot area. Great community, very little crime, and absolutely beautiful landscape during the autumn and spring.
