    What's Calhoun, Georgia like?
    My stepdad is putting in for a promotion with his job and if he gets it, that's where we'll be moving. So....since he won't take us there for a visit....is it a nice place or totally sucky?
    Love

    I love going to Georgia... but the state always feels huge when you go to Florida, even if you just go through the shortest distance on I-95, along the coast.

    They gots pretty good shrooms... mang. There's nothing like Northern Georgia (Calhoun is in Northern GA. I have a great aunt that lives in Dahlonega, where the Appalachian Trail ends)... or going to Savannah or Brunswick.

    I've always wanted to find a cabin in the Georgia hills/mountains. Calhoun is a small town, I think off of I=75... It's actually closer to Chattanooga, Tennessee than Atlanta. It used to be part of the Cherokee nation land, but President Jackson forced the Cherokees (with the army) to Oklahoma during the trail of tears/indian removal act. There was also a battle between General Johnston and General Sherman at Adairsville, nearby; part of Sherman's burning and looting Atlanta campaign.

    calhoun is a very strange town.. lots of carpet mills,, so the hispanic population is about 50%.. it has a nice "old time feel" (buncha old hicks always out and about)downtown..

    the more rural areas of the county consist of rolling hills,flood plains an swamp land..
    not a lot to see or do.

    all in all id say yer gonna hate it there..

    the only good side to calhoun is you are halfway between atlanta and chattanooga..

    we live about a hour from calhoun an i know the area fairly well,, if you have anymore specific questions feel free to ask..

    Hmm, strange. Just checked Wiki and it says the hispanic pop. is near 20 percent, second to caucasian... There really aren't many black folks around there, either, but there's alot of pacific islanders.

    Well, I mean, the census was six years ago and demographics have changed alot since then, so it could be alot higher with the whole hispanic flow coming over the border. I'm sure alot of them are illegal.

    Groovy.
    I like the old time feeling kinda places. The people are always nicer and there's always scenery for when I like to walk.
    It's not a sure thing yet that we're going....just wanted to get an idea of what we're getting into. :D

    Yeah, that's really the only problem I'd have if I lived there... far away from the coast, but meg, you live in Kentucky. I live less than a mile off the Chesapeake Bay, so we've always got tradewinds.
