I wasnt born here, we moved here when I was 13 (21 now). I can see where the elder and goodhearted consider this place a classic small town home in the country.. however, it is overrun with drugs. Druggies have their own apartment building..you guys know what Im talking about. Druggie Terrace? Besides, the schools are for shit, in my six years of attending school here (before college) Ive had maybe one teacher who actually cared about students and grades. Furthermore, there is NOTHING TO DO! We have a movie theater, a place to swim in the summer and a skating rink in the winter. Stats show places like this will have higher drug AND suicide rates because there honestly is nothing being offered but drugs and a spoonful of depression. Please, dont bring your poor kids here. Im leaving before I have kids, Id never raise them here.

greeneville is a beautiful place, and if the people here were not so bad it would be a great place to raise a family. i am currently stuck here but will be leaving asap. i have lived in a lot of different places and by far the people here can be bad. not saying they cant be good i have a lot of people i love from here but the bad outweigh the good. look up recent news and topics on here to see what im talking about.this is a deeply twisted town if u notice that is why the e is capitalized in GreenEville it is green Evil and u need to get away while u can before u get stuck

I recommend Iran, but I may be biased. Let's just say anywhere in the world where Sharia is found.

Greeneville is a great place if you live in the right place and meet the right people and you don't turn into an alcoholic or druggie and get sucked into the dirty underbelly of this town.

born and raised here... would love to move but can't right now. it is a beautiful town, but so many of the people here make it an unattractive place to be. i suppose coming in as an outsider not knowing anyone would make it easier on you except for the fact that some don't accept outsiders so well. some people think they know everybody's business and talk smack about everybody. check out all the threads started on here... mostly sex, drugs and bashing. you can tell alot about the towns people by the kind of trash that's posted on here.

If Greeneville wasn't a nice place, I would not be here.
I'm thinking of moving to the area and I thank you for your comment. By the way...who is John Galt? ;-D

The answer to your question is NO!! Greeneville is not a place to raise children! Greeneville is full of Rde-Necked drug eating careless stupid people! No body here has the respect or concern for the other and they drive like idiots! The school system doesn't give a shit about your kids and if anything happens in school involving your child, they blame the home for it!

I moved here over twenty years ago to raise my children in a safe environment. BAD IDEA!!! Greeneville is ran by "Good ol Boys" and the economy is awful. Education is the worst unless you are in the city schools that Niswonger promotes. County schools stink. As for the police...just look up Robbie Morgan and that best describes most of the cops in Greeneville and Greene County. The bible thumpers and idiots run ramped here. They have no clue there is a real world out there with education and other religions.

I love my hometown but unfortunately this is pretty accurate. It is a beautiful town, but a lot of the people make it miserable for others. They are harsh on outsiders (even if you were born here, if you are not born & raised here as well as all of your family, you are an outsider), unaccepting of any religion other than Southern Baptist or other similar evangelical Christian one, and can be downright ignorant. There are no decent jobs. The only thing that is really great about Greeneville is the beautiful mountains surrounding the town.
