People would come from every where to drink the water for health.
Some people moved here for the mineral water.
Altho not mountainous, at least not what I would call a mountain,
the town is up some elevation and what I would call hills. So many
years ago, coal and some other minerals were mined here.
I had to down size after my husband passed away. My sister lives
here in this town and she wanted me to move over here and her
husband is not in good health. She lives outside of the town in a
very remote country area. She won't live there if her husband
passes away. So I bought a house here and bought one large
enough so that she can move in with me if he passes away.
There's plenty of room and the house is a nice three bedroom
brick home. There is almost no land to it so not much upkeep
We have to look to our future when we start getting old. The
town population here is less than 5,000. The bank is only a
few blocks from my house, the dollar store only a few blocks
away, the grocery store only a few blocks away, insurance
office a few blocks away, the park only a few blocks away.
Everything is close and the town is safe and quiet. There is
only 3 houses on my block and mine is one of them. Across
the street is a large open field and only one house and it is
at the end.
It's also a lake area here. Very close to Kentucky Dam and
resort area. Many people that live here now are people that
like to live in a resort area, fish, boating, camping, hunting, etc.
This house was built in the 1970's and it is a nice house but
some things I am updating.
Sounds just perfect but only in normal world , not here
Only 5000 people here in Australia and you have nothing , maybe just few corner shops with huge cost , no hospital , only primary school , 1 or 2 doctors , maybe and so on and on , nothing , nobody invest in small place in Australia , they are forgoten
Tasmania is good example , with just 500 000 [ half million ] people and all prices 30-50% up compared to rest of Australia
