Move to Cookeville

If you’re looking to relocate, here are some reasons that our Chamber of Commerce President George Halford gives for why you should move to Cookeville:

1. Strategic location at the intersection of I-40 and Hwy 111 between Nashville, Knoxville and Chattanooga.
2. Hub of a 14-county region of more than 338,000 citizens and retail center with sales of more than $1 billion annually.
3. Four county (Jackson, Overton, Putnam, White) regional economic development program and brand called the Highlands Initiative.
4. Among top 40 micropolitan areas of the nation, largest micropolitan area in Tennessee.
5. Well over $100 billion in bank deposits annually.
6. Regional educational center home to Tennessee Tech University of international repute and consistently among best universities in academics and value, along with community colleges, technology centers, and Cookeville High School – only Tennessee non-metro school with an International Baccalaureate Program.
7. Health care anchored by Cookeville Regional Medical Center, a national award winning, state of the art regional medical center.
8. Reportedly more automated external defibrillators (AEDs) per capita than most communities making it one of the “safest cities” in the nation.
9. One of the smallest cities in the US with a full-blown symphony orchestra, Bryan Symphony Orchestra [unfortunately, they only play their concerts on the Lord’s Day].
10. One of the top three most walkable cities in Tennessee (
11. Sixth least expensive city in America (ACCRA Cost of Living index).
12. One of the smallest cities in the nation with its own public television station, WCTE-TV.

And I’ll add a No. 13. – A growing PCA church with an almost built brand new building and a loving congregation. If you’re looking to relocate, come join us as we seek to gather and grow God’s people in the Upper Cumberland.
