I haven't been in Ravenswood for 20+ years but considering a return. I lived in Silverton and remember it being a nice neighborhood. My children will be home schooled when they are of age, so we're looking for a small town environment to relocate to.


I am a licensed school teacher in Virginia so would obviously seek employment in that venue. Are there any private/christian schools in Jackson County?

Parents - how would you grade the public schools in Ravenswood?

What is the cost of real estate like in/around Ravenswood/Silverton/etc? Ideally something between 5 and 20 acres. It would not need a home on it currently so long as it was level enough to build a home on after purchase.

Personal inquiries:

Is Mr Lawson still around and in the classroom at Ravenswood Middle School? How about Mrs. Toothman at Eastwood Elementary? Mrs. Wiseman?

Also, please feel free to give insight into the community. From the posts all ready here, I see there are some problems in the community. Every community has their share of issues, but please feel free to be candid in your views. I'm certain they'll help me get a feel for the current state of the town I lived in as a youth.

Mr Lawson still teaches at Rav middle, Mrs Toothman is at Rav middle now and I believe Mrs Wiseman retired.

I haven't lived in ravenswood for 2 years but when I did I thought the Elemntary School along with the Grade School was really good. I absolutely Loved Mr.Frazier. When my children went to school there he was the principal. The teachers there actually care about the kids they teach, My favorite was Mrs. Beverly Smith.

seriously, this town is messed up. Everybody knows it.

The Harbert/Romeo/Hunt Political Machine is corrupt as Hell.

That whole mess where they got Bob Romeo(Lucy's Brother) on the City Council is a disgrace. He Wasnt even Voted on. He is a sore loser. Everybody hates him(Including his WIFE and his kids.) His wife had and affair with former WVU Football Star Jake Kelchner.
He used to Hang out AT The LADY GODIVAS STRIP CLUB IN HUNTINGTON. Bob also got fired from a job for sexual harassment!!

Seriously, That other moron Gary Hunt resigns from his city council job because Lucy Hired him for another CITY JOB!! THEN they get Bob on the city council to replace him!! Their were 3 other more people who had MORE votes than Bob who should have been in that Council seat!!! Judy was INVOLVED with that Crap!! That whole thing was done so the Romeos/Herbarts/Hunt could control their business interests!! They got that homosexual Jared hunt(gary's son) working for the paper!!! Gary does a lot of advertising for his store and their would BE NO PAPER if it wasnt for him!!

Plus, Jared is a disgrace to reporting!!! He is filing all this crap to get peoples names in the paper, buy he leaves out a bunch of stuff when he is told.

For example, There was a story not to long ago about an incident that occured at Mulberrys. It said "the Owner called the police" blah blah blah.

The Owner is Brian Gould. Jared didnt mention that because Pete Gould also runs this town. Pete calls in favors ALL THE TIME! Pete and Gary are friends.
Pete ALSO does a lot of advertising FOR the PAPER!!

I know where there is appx 3 acres of land for sale in a housing development just about 2 miles out of Ravenswood. The property is fairly level and it already has a well on it. It needs cleared because it is has growed up but it would be a nice place, especially for a cabin. If you would like to know more reply to me on here and I will get you a phone number to call.

You kmow what really pisses me off about the current administration is the Jackson
Crossing. What the f--- happened to it. All the money, all the talk, all the rates raised on the water bills.It's funny you don't here of the of this project anymore. Makes a man wonder

It's really hard to spend any time at the riverfront park this spring because of the smell. We have had to start taking our evening walks elsewhere. It's going to make it unbearable this year for reunions, music events and family outings unless something is done. Its a shame that so much money was spent last year on the sewer lagoon and what we get for the money is a stench that is downright sickening. You can smell it in town too. Maybe the guy who wants to put the aluminum statues at the river front could build an aluminum wall around the lagoon, cause nobody will be at the stinkin park.

Ravenswood could have built a real sewer plant that met all the modern standards for the next 50 years and it would have been smaller in size than the current fire department and all concrete! Ohio outlawed pit lagoons 15 years ago, now you know why! This lagoon will be outlawed by the feds in 10 years, what a waste of tax money, YOU cannot raise a "stink" in council for sure cause it already stinks! How sad for our town.
