West Point Reviews

4 reviews
All Categories
West Point is such a great place to live, it's a very small town with roughly 3,000 people living in it. You get the small town vibe when you start to come over the bridge. The WestRock Paper Mill is right in the middle of town, they also give the majority of the townspeople their jobs. Downtown West Point has a few little mom-and-pop shops. West Point is the type of town where everybody knows everybody, it feels like home the minute you step foot onto West Point soil. I am proud to call such a lovely little town my home!

West Point is a quaint town full of charm and southern hospitality. Everyone treats you like family and makes sure you feel at home while in town. Perfect place for families!
This town is relatively homey. The people are polite. The public school systems are known for being good. There aren't a lot of jobs, so most people drive about 30 minutes to get to work. There are always houses for sale. There are a lot of churches and restaurants. There isn't a lot to do on the weekends.
