I have lived in Tunnel Hill most of my life and I absolutely love it. There's really no criminal activity, everybody knows everybody, and its a beautiful little town. We also have a great elementary school. They have recently added on the school and they have great teachers. They really make you feel welcomed in the school and the always kept me informed of my children's progress in class. The only thing I wish was different is the restaurants and stores. There used to be a small, family owned type grocery store. Every few years it would be bought by a new set of people until just about six months ago it completely went out of business. Also, the only restaurant we have is a dominos. So now, if you need groceries or wanna get something quick to eat, you have to go South to Dalton or head North to go to Ringgold.

Tunnel Hill is a small town! I like that even though we are small, we make everyone feel like big impacts on issues and community events! I would like to see the Tunnel Hill Recreation Department improved! Improving the park would make it go from worn down, to inviting for the youth to spend time!
It's a small town and the police department is really involved with the community. Never speed in this town!
