Welcome to the City of Goshen

The City of Goshen had its first post office in 1862 and was eventually founded in 1982. It's a quaint little town in the heart of the Ozark Mountains with a population of just over 2,100 (via the 2010 Census). Goshen is nestled seven miles East of Fayetteville, where the White River meets Richland Creek at "The Twin Bridges," a favorite spot for seasonal white bass fishing. According to Business insider, Goshen is the "most educated" city in Arkansas. 

With all its charm and neighborly character, Goshen provides a rich history of families who have owned farms for generations. The landscape is dotted with hay fields, cattle farms and equine facilities giving the community a real hometown feel. Goshen also homes Mill Branch Park, a 111 acre park for those who love the outdoors. From hiking trails to disc golf, there is something for everyone! 

For those who enjoy close to city living Goshen is conveniently located just a short drive from the University of Arkansas as well as a plethora of shopping and dining opportunities. With some of the largest corporations, like Walmart, Tyson, and JB Hunt, in close proximity along with popular event destinations such a Beaver Lake, Crystal Bridges Museum, The Walmart AMP (Arkansas Music Pavilion), The Walton Arts Center and Devil's Den State Park

If you are looking for a small community with rural flavor, while having easy and convenient access to all the amenities of nearby urban areas, Goshen is that place. Come and visit us and see for yourself!
