Goodwater was chartered in 1894 as a rail road town. Being one of only 2 places the steam engine could turn around, Goodwater became a boom area for business and travel by rail. Today Goodwater is a quiet community with a rich heritage. We are home to area's most businesses and largest manuafacturing operations. We have a full service Municipal Water and Sewer System that can meet the needs of any industry. Security is provided by the County's only 24 hour around the clock Police Department.
