I lived in Mooresville for 7 years. It's a nice rural town. It's growing. In ways not a lot to do there, but plenty of farm land if you like rural areas. Rural, but not too far away from things.

PS....Make sure you keep your kids out of Monrovia schools though. They don't have much to offer. I wouldn't call them a 4 star school system. More like 2 Star, it that. Better yet stay out of Martinsville..Red neck all the way.

Had to move away a couple of years ago to a little larger town a couple of hours away...
Really appreciate it more now. I miss it much more than I thought I would..

I just moved here, and it's okay. I am kind of amazed at how many people have tatoos on their necks. Names of other people and such. No effect on anything really, just strange.
There are things to do, two great feed stores, lots of nice people. Not a far drive to "the big city".
Lots of small town stores. I live in mooresville proper and can get to 3 grocery stores, 6 fast food places, 3 sit down resturants, many banks and churchs, 4 or 5 pizza places, CVS, Walgreens, three auto stores, a park with a pool and more all within 2 miles.
Biffs downtown has the greatest bismarks. Named as such 50 years ago, theirs are cinnamon rolls with icing, homemade bread - french toast, but watch out for the sausage. That is what makes it a greasy spoon.:)
No movie theater but the Tibbs drive-in is about 8 miles away. 4 screens, two movies per screen, on weekends they run the first movie again, so you can see three movies for $10 per person.(you can move from screen to screen.)
Not a lot of snow in the winter, but it gets a bit muddy in the spring. Summers are 80 - 90 degree days, cooler at night. Spring and fall are terrific. Great fall colors.

The schools are full of drugs. Don't do it if you have kids. Cocaine is big in Mooresville.

If you go to Shady Lane, there is an old graveyard. The graves are from the 1800s. Lots of babies. I think there was some kind of epidemic there.

I've lived in Mooresville since 1975. I raised my child who went to Mooresville Schools and graduated without incident. My grandchildren also live in Mooresville and go to school there with one in 7th grade and one in 10th. It's no doubt that every school has kids who do drugs, but to say that Mooresville has a big cocaine problem is crazy.(notice this comment came from someone located in California) The town of Mooresville is a great place to live and to raise a family. It's located in the northern part of Morgan County and just 10-15 minutes to the interstate. Homes are very affordable and the property tax base is one of the lowest of the 9 county "doughnut" counties around Indianapolis/Marion County. I have sold real estate in this county for 15 years. People who live here love the country feel yet close enough to almost anything you would be interested in. We are a friendly, family oriented town.

Median home value $139,900 $217,200
% Owner-occupied 77.6% 66.2%
% Vacant 4.3% 9.0%
Rental 18.7% 24.8%

Founded in 1824, Mooresville is named for its founder, Samuel Moore, a Quaker from North Carolina and today offers a beautiful Midwestern setting for high quality family life. In the heartland, Mooresville combines small town atmosphere with the benefits of a nearby big city. Just ten miles southwest of Indianapolis, Mooresville is located next to a major distribution center and international air hub. Because of all it has to offer, Mooresville is the "Crossroads of Progress" and is becoming the new home of many businesses and families.
Mooresville has a number of claims to fame:
•Paul Hadley, designer of the Indiana State Flag, was born in Mooresville.
•Gravity Hill is a locally famous landmark. Due to an optical illusion, cars parked at the bottom of the road appear quite convincingly to roll uphill.
•John Dillinger spent much of his childhood in Mooresville and sometimes hid to there while hiding from authorities.
•Mooresville was the background for a video short, "Big Dancing, Small Town," produced by two Mooresville High School seniors. The video's popularity on YouTube culminated in its presentation as a feature video on the ABC's Good Morning America, on January 24, 2007.
•Arnold Zifel, the pig from Green Acres was from a farm in Mooresville. The pig was a pedigree Chester White, trained by Frank Inn.

Isn't Monrovia different from Mooresville? All these comments are for Mooresville. I want to know about Monrovia, I plan to move there in 6 months and I really don't know much about it. I see all the comments on how bad the Schools are but thats all! Tell me something positive about Monrovia.
