Wealthy People are Moving to the Ozarks Region in Droves
Ok so in addition to my day job, I do handyman work on the side, as well as construct hoop houses (greenhouses. Within the last 2 or so years, I have made some very good money doing this for people moving to the Ozarks. Most of these people have money, and alot of it. A few weekends ago I was installing a rain water catchment system for this man for a huge detached garage he had built on his property, he had a very impressive collection of cars, including 2 Ferrari's, and a 57 Chevy.

Not just him. I've done alot of work for newer farm owners, all of these people had a seemingly endless supply of money to spend, and wanted work done in a hurry.

I have noticed alot of nicer cars driving around too, especially younger college aged girls driving expensive suv's.

It appears there are alot of wealthy people moving out here.
Remember this is an area where the average income is around 30k for most people, and many people are unemployed, so it stands out.

The Ozarks

The Ozarks are a physiographic and geologic highland region of the central United States. It covers much of the southern half of Missouri and an extensive portion of northwestern and north central Arkansas.

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

Current economic activities
Tourism is the growth industry of the Ozarks as evidenced by the growth of the Branson, Missouri, entertainment center celebrating the traditional Ozark culture.

Poultry farming and food processing are significant industries throughout the region. The Tyson Foods corporation and ConAgra Foods each operates several hundred poultry farms and processing plants throughout the Ozarks. Schreiber Foods has operations throughout southern Missouri. Stillwell foods has frozen vegetable and other food processing centers in eastern Oklahoma.

The trucking industry is important to the regional economy with national carriers based there including J. B. Hunt, ABF and Prime, Inc.. Springfield remains an operational hub for BNSF Railway. Logging and timber industries are also significant in the Ozark economy with operations ranging from small family run sawmills to large commercial concerns. Fortune 500 companies such as Wal-Mart in Bentonville, Arkansas, Leggett & Platt and O'Reilly Auto Parts are based in the Ozarks.

The area is also home to several Missouri wine regions including the Ozark Highlands AVA and Ozark Mountain AVAs.

~~~Are these people retiring or still working and if so where? Sounds like a lovely place except for the poisonous critters.

... and people are retiring -- that area has a lot to offer.

... and the Mormons are planning a large facility there -- a lot are relocating there in anticipation of this.

... but, also of note, a lot of Amish are moving that way as well. (redacted... to avoid the Amish defenders).
