I have lived in Waynesboro, MS going on 15 years now. It is a rather small town, but the people are friendly. I worked for Herbert Ramey, who ownes the local grocery store, a business that his father started years ago. Mr. Ramey buys local produce from farmers and advertises them in his store. You couldn't ask for a better person to know, and work for. I would have to say that the prettiest parts of Waynesboro would have to be on the few creeks that run through the area. There are several stores to shop from, including Wall-Mart. Most everyone knows everyone.

I was raised in Waynesboro, MS. It's a small town and so everyone pretty much knows or knows of mostly everyone else. That can be good or bad. I'm a country girl, so Waynesboro made me that way and it fits. The city has changed over the years, so not sure how I feel about that. I no longer live there, but I visit ever so often. It has become more violent than wanted or expected, but overall, if you pretty much keep to your own circle, it's a good place to be.
Waynesboro is a small town where everyone know everyone . It mainly religious and people get along well.
