The Good of Goshen is Good for Everyone

This is WHO we are!

Here in Goshen, Indiana – “The Maple City” – we take great pride in our city and our people. We’ve come a long way since our founding back in 1831, and we are still growing and improving, making it one of the best places in Indiana to live, work, play, and visit.

The Good of Goshen is just a slice of our story.

Inside the pages of The Good of Goshen – our community-driven, storytelling project – you can learn about some of the good (and many great) things Goshen has to offer, and learn all about our town. You can hear directly from some of the folks who – working over the years within our welcoming and supportive community – have achieved, overcome, accomplished, and succeeded in creating and doing much of the good work that has helped Goshen become what it is today: one of the best places to live in the State of Indiana and in the entire Midwest.

Visitors often say that Goshen “just feels like home.” Come on in and find out why!
