I'm not NC but I do live in Bledsoe Co. Larry. Grew up in this area and have never left. Pikeville is a mall, VERY rural town with just the basics. But if a quiet country life is what you are looking for then it's all good;) I haven't been to Dunlap since highschool days eons ago but I'm not very suprised to hear about the crime. If your property is on the ole east valley road, anywhere along that part of the country is beautiful. I have a friend that raises Quarter Horses and Brahama cattle that has a farm in that area.

crime is everywhere, your never gonna get the luxury of not living without it. as far as dunlap goes, everyone in pikeville goes there I mean "hello" they built a walmart there and more than one restaraunt.Pikeville has more than its share of trouble too.

I am moving to Pikeville soon. I'm looking forward to a slower paced life. I'm in my mid-twenties too by the way.

Umm duhhh i don’t think topix is a reliable source of information!! The valley relatively has little random crime!! Most of the crime you hear aboit are family or neighbor quarrels!

Moved here from out of the area. Its fine, but you will have to protect your own. I live in Bledsoe and shop and worked in Dunlap. I can tell you now better law enforcement in Sequatchie is better than Bledsoe under the sheriff Bledsoe has now. You will not have the services here that you have in a larger city such as Crossville. They work at their on pace. Order a phone 6 weeks ahead of time. Just think you are stepping back and entire century and you will be fine.

tennessee is a very pretty state, but it is a poor state more than its share of meth addicts, crime corruption ranks the state in the top 3 and education in the bottom 3, it would be fine in pikeville if you own land outside the city (only city in the whole county btw) and was content watching the sun come up and go down, have a dog or 2 and can have fun watching paint dry. i live in evensville, tn which is in rhea county and we drive into dayton sometimes the walmart in the next county north roane county. i would still rather deal with the rural thieves and drug addicts in a small area as to a big city, couldnt pay me to live in east knoxville or even go there to visit a prostitute the county mayor gor arrested for visiting lol. good and bad in everthing
