Hello. My family and I are relocating to the Ft. Knox duty station. We were not trying to live on a post again, due to the 'claustophobic' feeling of having our every move revolve around post. Radcliff was off the list because the school ratings were horrible. We're trying to avoid E-town to avoid the traffic. Vine Grove is closer to Knox and the schools were rated very high. I realize Vine Grove is a smaller area, but was curious if there's an 'air of racism' at all or any problems along those lines (whether in the schools or in the community). would appreciate some feedback. Thanks!

Oh yeah near the park the new houses are built in what is called sloppy bottoms. Old creek and swampy area. I have seen the small creek raise up close to the houses.

I have lived in vine grove for ten years, retired military. I've never experienced any racism issues, and overall I'd say vg is a peaceful community. Good luck, and thanks for your service.

There is racism everywhere, Kentucky is no different. We have lived in the area for 10 yrs and have purchased a home near vine grove elementary where we are very happy and hope to send our son. The schools are great and give the town a sense of community. North Hardin is the major high school and many of it's graduates still come to games year after year to support the school athletics. There are several military families in this area because it is so close to base. Be sure to avoid the sloppy bottoms area and if you expand your search to rineyville, you'll want to avoid la vista as well. The area near Lincoln trail golf course has beautiful and newer houses, depending on your price range, but other areas of vine grove are not as well kept up. Michael's Italian restaurant is located on main street and is amazing. The take out Chinese place next to IGA is also decent. Vine Grove is a small town and sees a lot of diversity because of its location to base, so I have never known racism to be a major issue here. I should warn you though that, as with many small towns, everyone will know someone who knows someone that knows your business and when it comes to things like employment opportunities or whether or not your kid makes a sports team, your business will be the first thing on the table. If racism is a major concern I will advise you to avoid Meade county, Breckinridge, and Grayson county, in case you planned on widening your search further. The further you get from base and etown (or major city:Louisville, Lexington, bowling green, etc), the more backwoods the people get. Good luck to you all and thanks for all you do for our country.

Also, while there are sex offenders I should point out that sex offenders have a lower recidivism rate than any other type of criminal, so why you should be careful, you should be doing that in their presence or not.

There are no minority teachers at Vine Grove Elementary and only one African American and one Hispanic at JTA. If you want diversity in the teaching staff then move on post.
