Come see us...

Goree is a quaint, quiet town with easy access to the lake, guided hunting/fishing, hunting lodges, RVing, camping and extremely affordable real estate for your very own hunting headquarters. Finally, Goree has the last stop for bait, beverages and snacks before heading to the lake, Millers Creek Reservoir.

Hometown Girl

"Growing up on a small Texas farm, waking each morning to hot biscuits with wild plum jam was the beginning of the day's fond memories.

Pedaling bicycles to wild plum thickets around the 4th of July added chapters to my story. From the window of my memory, I can see mom teaching me the tradition of making and giving wild plum jam.

In the Fall of 1990, with the encouragement and help of family and friends, Texas Plum Line became a reality.

Sharing Texas Plum Line with you leaves my story - to be continued..."

...that little ditty was from and Texas Plum Line is a business that originated in Goree, Texas. I'm not sure, but I think the wild plums are still harvested from Goree. Goree Ex, Connie Haskin Bingham, is the founder of this business. She, by the way, was a speaker at our 2008 Homecoming Program along with Carl Harris and Jan Roberts. These three reminded everyone what it was like to grow up in our town and be a Goree Wildcat. If you missed these talks, then you really missed a treat! A Top Twenty Treat, even!
