These are Apparently Indiana’s Worst Small Towns
A website recently analyzed all of the small towns in the state of Indiana to determine which are the worst, and the results might surprise you.
As someone who is from a small town in Indiana, I am proud of where I come from. Boonville, Indiana is a great place to raise a family and to call home. I don't care what anyone says. Indiana is full of small towns. Most of these little towns in the state are quite charming. There's so much hometown pride in these small towns. However, most would agree that not all small towns are great places. That being said, one publication just found the ten worst small towns in Indiana.
Recently, we explored the Indiana town that was named the "most unusual" in the state, as well as three Indiana towns that were named some of the best small towns in the country. Now, were are going to take a look at the small towns that were named the worst in Indiana.
A website called RoadSnacks did a little research and found the ten worst small towns in Indiana. Their findings were determined based on several factors: unemployment rates, crime rates, housing costs, high school dropouts, adjusted median income, and population density. Before we share the list of towns, remember, I am just the messenger here. If you live in one of these small towns in Indiana, don't blame me for this list.
According to RoadSnacks' data findings, these are the worst small towns in Indiana:
1. Country Squire Lakes
Editor's Note: We've been informed County Squire Lakes is not a town, it’s a subdivision in North Vernon, IN.
2. Union City
There you have it. The worst small town in Indiana is Country Squire Lakes. After looking at Country Squire Lakes online, I don't think that it looks as bad as the data makes it out to be. I mean it's full of lakes, a beach, fishing areas, a marina, and fun events. Honestly, it sounds like my kind of place. According to data and science though, apparently, it's not as nice as it sounds. I suppose you can make your own call on whether or not these small towns are as bad as the data says they are.
