Hohenwald has been discovered by young retirees from all over the country. The attraction is more than the fact that Tennessee is one of the few states that has no income tax and real estate is so affordable.
Hohenwald is the perfect place to get away from the crowded metropolitan areas without sacrificing services. The county population of about 12,000 and city population of around 4,000 has kept the small town feel. It is a place where neighbors still know and still care about each other. Many are involved in local church and civic organization activities.
Some retirees enjoy the convenience of living in town, where most services are located within walking distance. Others prefer the great forests and streams the county has to offer.
Those who enjoy the nightlife of a larger city can watch Broadway performances at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center, see NFL games at the Nashville Coliseum, enjoy live shows at the world famous Grand Ole Opry and dine at Nashville’s finest restaurants, all within a driving time of one and a half hours from the serenity of their home decks overlooking the Buffalo River.
