Trenton is a nice area out here in Tennessee. I recently just moved out here a few months ago. Really had no trouble with the area. Its very quiet out here, there's no spoken of violence. Everyone is very friendly and mindful of others. Along with that, everyone is very friendly. Really haven' had trouble out of anyone in Trenton. This area has plenty of markets, so you wouldn't have to go anywhere extra mile just to get what you need from the grocery store. Not only markets, but fast food restaurant. Even have a buffet that is so delicious. So if you like a quiet, clean, and friendly area, I would like to highly recommend Trenton, Tennessee to you.
The school district is the BEST in West TN; however, Trenton is a rich little, good ole boy town. Everything is locally owned and no retail business can enter. There are literally 6 places to eat; all locally owned, and except for McDonald's all the menu prices are at least a dollar more per item than any other location. It has two grocery stores, locally owned by the same person, high prices and not very friendly.
