Does anyone know anything about the Klondike area (if you go through Jasper and keep going for about 5 miles)? My husband and I are thinking of moving into that area and we have two small children. We've called the police station and some churches and mostly heard good things, but one person said there were a lot of drug problems back in there. We wanted to see if any locals, especially residents on Klondike road, would be willing to tell us if there was any reason not to live in that section of Duffield.

Thanks!

The Klondike is kind of remote, so there is both good and bad that comes with that. There are some awfully good folks that live there though. I've known some of them for almost 50 years. I wouldn't mind living in the area, no more of a drug problem than anywhere else in Lee County....actually probably less of a problem.

Thanks for your response, johnwayne. So far, we've only had one person say anything negative and we've checked the police stations and I've called churches.

I lived there when I was a child with my brothers and parents many years ago. I have wonderful memories of it. I go back there a couple times a year. Wish I had bought some property there a few years ago when it was selling good. I agree with prev post...there are no more drugs there than any other place in lee/scott counties. Just more room to hide back in there. But, there are some GREAT residents there that don't take no shit from the druggies either...so just remember they are good people. Hope you decide to move there. Sounds like you are good people too.
