Upton, KYPros: There are a lot of great things about Upton...
Cons: the train that runs past the house about every 15 -45 minutes at night, not a lot to do in town9we have to go to e-town), the town is litterally cut in half one side being hardin and one side being larue counties, even tohugh I'm on the LaRue county side somehow I wound up paying Hardin county property taxes which are much higher, this being said my kids attend larue county schools which are better, much much better,
