Justwondering, if you move there, just be aware of the fact that it's a drug infested little burg. Lots of thefts related to the drug problems as well. If I had other options on places to move, I'd look at those instead of Hohenwald. No local jobs, more drugs than you can shake a stick at, crappy school system... nope, not a good place for a family.

I have lived in Hohenwald (city limits) for almost 3 yrs now. I love it! It depends what part of Hohenwald you are thinking about moving to. I was told that Lewis county, Hohenwald, Tn was given the best place to raise a family....Of course, no jobs are anywhere!

I moved to Hohenwald a little over 6 years ago from another state. I loved the area, great fishing & hunting and people seem very nice. Unfortunately, we had a family move into our neighborhood who started hauling junk and scrap into their yard bringing down the valuse of all our homes. We tried talking to these people, even paid them once to clean up their yard and helped them do so. The yard continues to go back to being an "eyesore". We have tried to get help from the city goverment, there does seem to be codes against this sort of thing but thus far have not been able to get any enforcement. It's heartbreaking to see the investment in our property deteriorate. Unless things change I would be leary about buying property in this town. As far as the drug problem, I think you will find that anywhere. We have had good luck with the City Police ridding our neighborhood of drug dealers once it is reported.

I loved it there for the short time I was there, until some little local tramp started sleeping with my now ex-husband.

Hohenwald has no jobs, a ton of drugs, and even more 40 year old people who think they are still 20 running around drinking and sleeping with everyone they can. Oh and then they go to church on Sunday.

I know who u are and who u are talking about. You want to talk about your neighbors your own daughter who lives next door does drugs and has a farm in the back yard with junk in her front yard too!! Maybe you should clean up in your own family before talking crap. Oh fyi she lets your grand daughter do drugs too!!

It blows my mind that Bloomberg picked Hohenwald as one of the best places to raise a kid. Garbage education, virtually no options to develop a career and not many options to just scrape up money, dimwitted law enforcement, drama in virtually all circles, sloth-like economic growth... the list seemingly never ends...

I was born in Hohenwald and have lived here my whole life and I do take offense to some of the things that were said like most say they are drug problems anywhere u go...a lot of small towns have no jobs not just here maybe u shouldnt be lazy and get off your ass' and find one like the rest of us. As for kids...I can speak for myself that was raised here. I am a college student and I work. I am very respectful do I go out and do drugs no...We have problems just like any other town in the U.S. The reason for the drama is because everyone knows each other...on the other hand since we are so small, when we have something happen we are always there for each other in times of need. As far as the school system I loved it. We had great teachers and I graduated with a 3.8 and now have a A average in college. I am not here to argue but dont knock my town when I have lived here longer than any of you.

I'm 25 and spent almost every day of my first 23 years of existence there, and since you claim to be in college, I would dispute the claim that you've lived there longer. Anyway - Virtually every negative point made so far is a valid one (yes, I am aware that I've already covered that... a year ago, lol). Honestly, I think THE biggest problem is the education system. It's too easy to breeze through the high school with As and Bs. And if an assignment was too hard, a classroom bitchfest was all it took to have that assignment thrown out the window. The teachers and administrators are MUCH too forgiving in this regard. I thought I had it made: 30 on the ACT, 3.8 GPA, "Most Intellectual" of my class, blah blah blah... then I shifted to college and started taking honors classes. It was like I had spent all my life driving a nail into a plank once a day, and then was asked to build a 30-story hotel. The difference in assignments and expectations was mind blowing.

Let me go ahead and admit that I was never the most motivated person in the world, and my depression mixed with apathy was ultimately what led to me flunking out of college in that first year. I guess the point I wanna make is: if you're gonna raise your kids in Hohenwald, for their sake and yours, PUSH them to succeed. Don't just glance at their report cards and assume everything is hunky dory.
