WELCOME TO GOREVILLE!
On behalf of all of our community, I want to welcome you to the Village of Goreville.
We are very excited that you have chosen us to be your new family, friends and neighbors. We are a very close-knit community and we strive to look after each other and help those in need. We work to utilize our resources to provide a better home for you and your loved ones and a better life for our residents for generations to come.
Our goal is to make you, the lifeblood of our village, proud of your community and proud to call the Village of Goreville your home. You won’t find any malls, large factories or traffic jams here. What you will find is a quiet, safe place to live and raise your family and create a real place to call home.
Goreville is the gateway to Ferne Clyffe State Park and the Lake of Egypt and is nestled in the heart of the Shawnee National Forest. Living here will find you surrounded by beauty and nature while enjoying close access to all of the major shopping and recreational areas Southern Illinois, Southeast Missouri and Western Kentucky have to offer. From our excellent school system all the way to our 4th of July Parade and Community Fireworks, you will find that we ARE the best kept secret in the Midwest.
Again, welcome to the Village of Goreville where we are PROUD to call home!
Larry L. Vaughn, Mayor
