EPODUNK USER REVIEWS & BLOGS

Carbon Hill, AL

Pros: Affordable housing, lots of wide open spaces, a lot of skilled laborers, very low crime rate, good schools, and only one hour from Birmingham or Tuscaloosa...

Cons: weak business district, crumbling front street, lack of vision.

This is a good place to live like a millionaire for very little.
