Gothenburg was founded in 1882 by Swede Named Olaf Bergstrom. Our town history begins there, but the history of our land goes back much farther than that. Early gold-rushers, Mormon Trail pioneers, homesteaders and so many that were traveling west to seek a better life, passed through our strip of land. Later, the Pony Express, Union Pacific and Lincoln Highway made their mark here.
When you visit Gothenburg, there is something that everyone in the family can enjoy. From historical sights and museums, to sport fields and fishing. Gothenburg is more than just a place, it's a state of mind!
