This place sucks. The only reason anyone would ever move here is because they have family here. Lots of druggies and very cliquey. I go to school at FCHS and it's just awful. Not only is it cliquey but it is also really skanky. I moved here two years ago and it's true, you aren't included in anything unless you grew up here. This place is like the Skid Row of Southern Illinois. But once you're here, you're stuck. So run while you have the chance.

Things that could and wil happen if you move to WF. You, your spouse or children may suffer depression. You could become a crime victim. You and yours will not have an easy time making friends. You will be excluded from social events. Your children will get a poor education. Drugs will be readily available. You will be talked about behind your back. You will be stabbed in the back by people in WF. Your children will pick up poor language skills. Your children will have poor role models. I could go on and on........

Rancher there is more per capita there than anywhere else. When I lived there a meth house was next door with the production facility down the street. A woman killed her child and stashed her body underneath the floorboards on Oak street. You can not have a bike sitting out on Charles street for five minutes before it gets stolen. Prostitution ring run out of the motel there along with a drug ring. Kids doing drugs in school. The only thing that is a pain for the sleeze bags to get to is the Public Aid office in Benton. Crosswalk is in WF where they can get their heating bills paid for. A complete Shithole
None ya

That's not true at all. This town is not "clickish" and I know tons of people who include new people to do stuff with them.

I lived in West Frankfort for 38 years and it was a nice little town for about 20 of those years. I moved to the Cape Girardeau area 5 years ago. Since then everytime I watch the local news out of Cape, the crime in West Frankfort is on there more than Cape. I will never say never but I hope I dont have to move back to Frankfort anytime soon.

was born and grew up in W.Frankfort. Left years ago--but remarks on this page made me sad. Is W.F really that bad? I drove thru the area last spring and took a quick run thru town--was amazed it looked so bad. What is wrong with the City Fathers?
I know employment is bad but it is all over the country-no excuse for drugs.

Another example of West Frankfort. Grant burnt herself good on east fourth street was busted in 2004 and still cooking. If you dont lock them up instead of let them snitch for time they will never learn. Dont they make enough on welfare and foodstamps. Please people stay in wf i want to stay safe. You are in a perfect Obamaland!

Lots of good parents also have kids that end up on the news or doing drugs. When a child becomes a certain age their parents no longer have an influence on them. And when good parents try hard to raise thier kids the right way, but the kids get involved with the wrong crowd because that is who accepts them, that is not bad parenting.
wf sucks

If you are not from here, you or your kids will never be "accepted", If you have kids and they play sports..forget it..does not matter how good they are..the kids they will play are the kids that have parents that grew up here..or if you kiss ass..Horrible town..

well I have lived here my entire life, 28 years, nearly if not everything that has been said is true, however you would be hard pressed to find a place that does not have the same issues. I live in a decent part of town, keep in mind though, that I moved out of the house that the girl was killed in just 2 months prior to that happening, it is hard to find anything positive to say about it but if you have lived here for a lifetime it is home, if not... I would not recommend moving here. Find yourself a nice little town in Tn. Just a side note though, the comments about the black people living here have no affect on the state and condition of this town, that is just pure racism, which is another huge problem here.

I did think about TN but not sure what I'm doing honestly...
