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.

A Sneak Peek... is a peek. The Goree exhibit at the Historical Museum in Benjamin is complete along with all the other Knox County towns' displays. (including the brick maker from Rhineland) We put the finishing touches on it yesterday by adding paper placards next to the items and photos. Much of the contents are borrowed from the Goree Memorial Building and will return home in six months. Some was brought to me from Mary DeHaro who is cleaning out our school. Some of the items are only stories...Joyce's infamous skating rink story, Trudy's memories of the doodlebug and dairy farm. Much of the contents were donated items from the W.W. Coffman (Lois Moore Estate) family. He was instrumental in the development of the 'new' Goree. The story of Goree's namesake was something I'd never heard. Anyway the grand opening is on Saturday and begins at 10:00 a.m. I think a lunch will be available in town, as well.
