Goldthwaite is an awesome place for families to grow. It's safe, and the schools are all updated. The community is full of friendly people who bond together in times of tragedies. The state of diversity is lacking, considering the population is mostly white with some Hispanic families.

Goldthwaite is a friendly, loving community. People always rally around others in times of need. There are a few disadvantages, however, like not being close to as many restaurants and stores.
Great Family friendly community. Very safe. Goldthwaite is what a hometown should be. Everyone comes to together and has each others back. Everyone is friends and gets along very well.
