ok I've been wanting to move to new town other one I live in for awhile now. And I have always heard its cheap yet west frankfort isn't the safest town to live in. And I want to know how accurate this is and what the safest neighborhoods are in it or at least which part of town would be the best to live. Appreciate opinions and feedback! thanks!=)

The "bad" part of town is the northwest side. Avoid it. A lot of meth heads over there.

I moved to WF 15 yearsago. My son was in 2nd grade. I lost him to pot. He started stealing. This town is full of drugs and bad activities. It is also very clickish. If you did not grow up here people do not include you in anything.

Really- every town and school has drugs- there's better parts of town to live in than others or just on the outside of town. Just depends where u want to live. West Frankfort is pretty much like any other town. You have a little bit of everything going on. And to donor live here. If u lost your son it wasn't because of the town. Most likely it was the people he hung around with and the way he was parented- how can u blame a town for that-

Horrible town, should just stay out of Franklin County. High unemployment, school system has a lot of drop-outs, corruption is rampant. Cheap housing synonymous with crime. RUN.

This is the absolute worse place I have ever lived. Its a crap hole. Police in this town are worthless, they look the other way while people they have arrested over and over, continue to push their drugs and drive drunk.

I guess you got your answer huh, not even the residents of WF want to be there. But, actually if you keep your nose clean, dont get involved in too much activity outside your home and seriously focus your time on YOU and YOUR family, you would be just fine living there or anywhere. Now move here and start going to the bars and hangin with the wrong people and your name will no doubt be on this site being bashed to no end, the people of WF no nothing else but to judge and discriminate against everything, everyone does in that town. I would say NO though dont go there.

In my travels around the world, I would have to rate West Frankfort, Il as the arm pit of the world. Trust no one and watch your stuff, the police Are a joke, and the women are all on meth, or pills and will love you rob you and leave you. No dude do not move the West Skantfort, il you will regret it

Must be nice to blame bad parenting on your town.

Any town with 6 housing units, Crosswalk, H-Group, half the town on the LINK card, several pawn shops, good ole boy politics, school system with drop-outs at a record rate, business council against any big franchises . . . WF's chances of positive growth: zero.

I moved out the last of October and moved to Benton. I lived in Skankfort for 18 years. Meth Heads drugs and violence has changed that town. Best idea was to sell the house and get the hell out of there.

I am very disappointed and discussed in my home town and a lot of the people in it.
It's not the same place I grew up in.
With the way it looks like a ghost town and all the druggies that have taken over. All I can say is Wow! And I'm actually ashamed of West Frankfort and don't want to be associated with it at all anymore.
The town and most of the people in it
It looks like it has been hit with chemical warfare
And I can't believe they actually let black people move there as I remember the stories of our area it had very strong ties to the KKK so why the change?? Maybe that was the towns first mistake one of Many.
And all the gossip and attacking each other

It's a dead end town and I am so glad I got out and stayed out.
Take a look at yourselves and the town
it's embarrassing!!
