It wouldn't be ADVISED. I am sure no one would harm you, but just be careful. There is not one black person in all of newton county....which has over 8000 people...that has to tell you something!

The person above is ignorant. I am a native of newton county, so I know the mindset of the hillbilly descendants like myself. There is no KKK here- it is in Boone county. Hillbillies didn't have slaves! They were too damn poor. Also, there are black people in newton county, not many though. I'd be more afraid of Boone county.
