I love living here because…

Gilmore City has an old fashioned, people matter atmosphere. It is a place where many accept responsibility instead of sponging off from the hard work of others or community paid for activities. It is a place where God is still welcomed and embraced. It is a place to feel like a person really belongs. It is home.
