Gove - a.k.a Gove City, the county seat of Gove [GO] county - is very much alive and thriving due to community involvement. Just drive 10 miles south on K-23 to see the native (quarried in Gove County) stone buildings.
Gove is a town which will survive because those living there and near there have set their goal to keep their town alive. First, the Gove County Historical Society was formed and purchased the old high school building. Soon it was developed into the Gove County Historical Museum. Later, the Gove Community Improvement Association(G.C.I.A.) was formed so that the town could keep its grocery store. Then the GCIA raised the money, and area citizens donated the labor so that a grocery store and The County Seat Cafe could be added to the community.
|Special Events||Entertainment has always flourished in Gove City, and the tradition continues today as each Old Settlers' Day is marked up with a production of a play, not to mention the parade, games, dinner, and dance. The third Saturday of August is the date for the annual Old Settlers' Day; plan to join us.|
