I've said it a thousand times, Whitesville is one of the best small towns in the area. Some of the kindest and most generous people live there. Residents always help their neighbors when asked. It's a great place to buy a home and raise a family. I know many beautiful souls in Whitesville that I'm proud to call my friends. It reminds me of my hometown in Michigan. The population of the small town is about the same as mine. Ever since I moved to Owensboro, I've wanted to move to the country. Whitesville has been on my mind quite a bit, so it may very happen at some point. They do have some great restaurants and small businesses.
