    Well, I moved here in 2003.  So I didn't grow up here.  Only the Northern part of the county, which borders NC, is mountainous.  But you said you wanted to include flat parts in Appalachia.  You can divide the county into thirds, with all the municipalities in the center third.  That center feels very suburban, with a lot of new development.  The other thirds are farmland; the southern third is wide open space that to me looks in better shape economically than the northern third.  But I might think that just because the roads in the southern third are in better shape.
