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.

Goree School

Hello Hometown,

Just wanted to drop you all a quick note and ‘officially’ announce that the school in Goree has been donated back to the City of Goree for public use. We appreciate Robert Dillard and the School Board for their cooperation and for giving us the opportunity to better our hometown.

If we do not utilize these facilities, then the upkeep, insurance and maintenance could hurt rather than help us. A Townhall Meeting is in the making. Thank you for your continued support and ideas.

We are excited to say the least!
Kent Trainham
