Surrounding Communities

gowrieGowrie is a bustling community nestled in the midst of north central Iowa's productive grain fields. It is a great place to visit and a wonderful place to live! The pace is a bit relaxed here but opportunities abound. Take a dip in the pool, revisit the past in our museum, hit the links at the golf course, walk a nature trail, attend a summer evening concert in the city park, or shop at one of our many fine businesses. These are just a sampling of the many things you can do here.
