my wife and i both grew up in a small pennsylvania town but are living in the concrete jungle near tampa now. we are thinking about moving to jamestown in the near furure. i'm a mechanical engineer and she is a receptionist. how is the job market there? i realize that i will most likely have to commute for work, which is no problem. we are looking to be back in a small town country setting to raise our daughters. i would like to be near hunting and fishing again as well. a few acres of land on a nice quiet road would suit us perfectly! tell me the ups and downs of the area. and while i'm here....anyone have a house to rent for a year or so?

thank you for the reply. i have some finishing touches to do on our home here, then it's going on the market. in this economy, it may be there awhile though. i was recently layed-off so right now i am looking for work so i can finish this house. shortly after that, we want to move. it's going to be a somewhat "blind" move being that neither of us have been there. we've only seen pictures so far. my plan is to rent a home for awhile and buy some land. then build our home there while renting.

If you are looking for a small town to raise your family then there isn't a better place. The cost of living will be much cheaper for you here. For the most part the people here are great. Crime isn't much of a concern, I still know people who leave there house with the doors unlocked. As for work, you will definately have to commute but your wife could probably find something local. You mentioned hunting and fishing....if that's an interest you will love it here. Good luck

Life is what you make of it, no matter where you put down roots. If you are looking to raise a family here, it will be great, but resources are limited as well as employment, and entertainment., Alot of people go out of the county for those.

This county keeps growing in development and population, so that counts for something.

Welcome to Tennessee and Fentress County.

Yawn. Of course I have no family of my own and I'm not ready to retire. But the jobs are VERY limited. Health care jobs are always in demand and that's about it. Great country views. Directly between Nashville and Knoxville. Lots of churches/activities. County fairs and what not. Absolutely amazing in the fall. Smells of wood-burning stoves and beautiful orange leaves. I'd definitely be checking on jobs before I made a decision.

everyone forgot to mention that we have a very high meth rate going on in the county and there is only shirt factories and health care jobs here or fast food and if your gonna buy property on the park road expect to pay 10 times the cost. i would think real hard before moving here. schools are over crowed . politics play high in school so if you dont have a good last name dont look for your kids to ever play in any sports around here.! just my opinion though!

Good point. Jamestown is all about the Name Game.=[
