Gowrie 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.


Gowrie offers a multitude of services that make life simpler and safer. We are served by well-trained and dedicated emergency services volunteers on the Gowrie Fire Department and the Southwest Webster Ambulance Service, who work alongside the personnel of the Gowrie Police Department. 

Health care professionals serve the community at the medical clinic, pharmacy, dentist, chiropractor, and optometrist. A new assisted living center, a skilled nursing facility, and retirement apartments provide services that allow the elderly to stay in their community.

If you are interested in relocating, a commercial and residential property tax abatement OR grant are offered by the City of Gowrie. Quality housing is affordable and available, including lots in several new developments, ready for your new home.
