Gove, the county seat of Gove county, is centrally located 11 miles south of Grainfield on the Union Pacific, the nearest shipping point. It is an incorporated city of the third class, has a bank, a weekly newspaper (the Gove County Republican-Gazette), over a score of mercantile establishments, and a money order postoffice. The population in 1910 was 196. Gove was founded in 1885. A number of buildings were at once erected and a telephone line to Grainfield was installed. It was made the county seat in 1886. In Jan., 1888, it was organized as a city of the third class. At that time it had a fine two-story brick school house, a two-story court-house and a newspaper, bank and stores, and a brick plant. The Gove county high school is located here.
