Goreville Reviews

I love my small town of Goreville. There is a little over 1,000 people in Goreville. The education and athletics are great. All of the teachers are amazing. My neighborhood is small and peaceful. I live by the beautiful lake of Egypt. Goreville has a few small businesses but all are great. We have two gas stations, and two restaurants. Which makes very little job opportunities. We have a nice city park and Ferne Clyffe State park.

Goreville is a very tight community where everybody knows their neighbors. It is a safe place for children to grow up and the school takes your child's education very serious.
Great place to raise kids. Family friendly town. Everyone is nice. Very Christian focused. Very safe town.
