I'm from Washington county, but Im pretty familiar with Meigs. I'm thinking of moving to Pomeroy to get away from where I'm at now. Where are the local jobs? Like plants etc. I have a background in law enforcement but I'm not particularly keen on perusing that career. Anyway, I've been looking on zillow and I've found 2 houses that seem pretty nice.

1. 142 mulberry ave

2. 12 Lincoln ter

Good neighborhoods or not so much? And how far away (in minutes) is pomeroy from Athens??
Thanks everybody!
just had to tell

That end of Mulberry is not good. The place on Lincoln Terrace should be nice. It hard to get in during the winter but you will have good neighbors. It is within sit of the FD and a member lives on that street.
just sayin

The house on 12 Lincoln Terrace looks really nice however, the driveway is one of the worst I have ever seen. No place to park and dangerous! If you go to look at it park at the end of the road and walk! There's no place to turn around and a cliff is next to the hillside you have to back down.

Gah, sucks to hear all the bad news. Not sure what to do. I'm not ready to move this minute so I suppose I will just wait a bit and do more research. Anytime I have visited down that way- I loved it, just seemed small and quiet. Where I'm from, it's drug infested too. Wth is wrong with people??? No where to go round SE Ohio without a drug issue. Kind of sad. And all the houses out in the country and rather expensive unfortunately! Screwed either way I suppose haha

If you can live in Athens you would be better off finding nicer places there. More expensive but trust me a lot better homes to choose from!

Water and sewer fee's are outrageous in Middleport! The New surfaced streets are terrible too.

Taxes in Athens County will eat you up. If you only think drugs exist in Pomeroy and Middleport then you are niave. Out in the county they are just as bad. Takes longer to get fire, ems, police if you live out in county. Any place you look at has a drug problem. If I hjad to pick a place in Meigs I would look at Syracuse.

Lol I actually did a ride along (police) in Syracuse with Spiker, so atleast I know where all the drug houses are there thanks to him showing me haha! And yes drugs are everywhere unfortunately. Don't matter if its country or city- just with city they may be 20ft from you rather than a mile or whatever. I appreciate everyone's advice, ill figure it out eventually, maybe.. Haha! Thanks guys!

The house located on Lincoln Terrace is in a great location. You just have to have a 4 wheel drive in the winter I'm sure. It's very private and you are with in walking distance to the riverfront walk/bike path. Drugs are everywhere by the way. I love Pomeroy. It's a pretty little river town with lots of friendly folks. Houses are cheap too.I couldn't tell you much about the school system though...I've heard good and bad. Good luck on your search. I wouldn't let any negative talk on topix keep me from moving here. Overall, it IS a nice little town.

I will not live in Meigs County. The judicial system is crooked and I do not wish for mytax dollars to support public officails who practuce law unlawfully.

If the road to the house was safer the house would be great. If driving on a cliff is what you call "needing 4 wheel drive" you are crazy. If you drive up there you have to back down or nearly go over the hillside. It's too dangerous and unless the seller fixes that situation this home will never sell. There is no parking and it would be death trap in the winter!
