STAT OUT OF LUNENBERG COUNTY! They don"t like outsiders.It will be 10 years before they will accept you.We tried it.Also be advised except for sports there is nothing to do for kids.Victoria pretty much rolls up the streets Fridat night.If you have boys watch them well.The girls start trying to get knocked up at the age of 12.They are mostly dirt poor and are looking to trap someone with a little bit of money.We tried it and got our boys the hell out of there.

It takes at least 15 years in South Hill to be noticed the noses are stuck up so high in the air Stay out of there if you are smart the ones who look normal won't like you the others are poor over weight and severely depressed and lack confidence

You might consider Kenbridge in Lunenburg County. The Town is building a new playground next to city hall and there is already a ballfield complex next to it.

We are new to Kenbridge and have yet to meet anyone who was rude, cold or indifferent.

Hope to see you in Kenbridge.

Kevin, I'm not sure who all these folks are who think the area is so bad.

We grew up in the area in the 60's but moved away for my job. We've retired back here on Lake Gaston and love the area. The two lakes (Gaston & Kerr) and relatively low land prices have made the area attractive to folks from outside the Southside.

South Hill has a Walmart and a Home Depot, several nice restaurants, access to I-85 and it's only a half-hour from either lake.

I also would encourage you to look in the Oxford area in addition, since you have school age children. As an educator in NC that lives in VA, I can tell you that your children will have better acedemic and sports opportunities in Granville County Schools. However, Clarksville IS a great place to live. The lake is fabulous, and the people are great.
