Editor's Note: A Quality of Life Committee working under the auspices of the Perry County Development Corp. is partnering with The News to present stories of people who have moved to Perry County or who have returned here after several years away. Nancy Myers penned this month's view.
I moved to Perry County almost nine years ago to work for the Hoosier National Forest in Tell City. I came from a national forest in Arizona near Phoenix that was very busy.
Because the forest was so close to the Phoenix metro area, it could be overwhelmed with visitors, especially during spring-break times. Because I really loved the Phoenix area and the desert environment, it took me a while to get used to being in Perry County, as it is drastically different from the desert.
When I first moved here, I was impressed with how friendly people were. I felt very welcome to the area. Over the years, I have grown to love Perry County and living in Tell City. I love the quiet, rural nature of the county and the down-home atmosphere.
The county is very beautiful and abundant in natural resources thanks to public and private forest land. I love the simplicity and quietness compared to the big city I used to live in.
When I go up to the Chicago area to visit family, I am happy to be there, yet it's always nice to get back to Perry County.
I love the house I bought here and the people are very neighborly. I am very blessed to live here and would recommend this area to others looking for a nice, quiet, beautiful place to live.
