Elwood is the county seat of Gosper County, Nebraska. As of the 2010 census, Elwood had a population of 707. Elwood is a traditional small town in central Nebraska. The center of town features several downtown businesses offering a friendly atmosphere with personable service.

The businesses of Elwood are essential for comfort and good living. In the center of downtown you will find the local grocery store. Not too far away from there you can find a convenience store and gas station which also has a small motel. There is a drive-in coffee shop, restaurant, implement dealer, and a well drilling business. Elwood has an attorney, real estate brokers, insurance companies, newspaper, two banks, and commodities dealers. There is also large grain handling, small manufacturing, irrigation and salvage, a locker plant, and construction companies. A funeral home recently opened and a number of small antique stores are in the area. You will even find a doctor's office and pharmacy located in town. There are fifteen new lots that have recently been rezoned for the building of residences.

The Elwood community feels blessed with an excellent and beautiful recreation area. There are several area lakes and a reservoir for camping and fishing. Wildlife surrounds the area for turkey, pheasant, and deer hunting. The Gosper County Fair is held in Elwood and has excellent rodeo grounds. The community owns its own carnival and volunteers work to host the fair and carnival. People come from miles around to attend this yearly event.

A caring and well staffed Assisted Living and Care Center is located not too far from the center of town. There is a feeling of home-life that pleases many that are residents at the center. The local Gosper County Senior Center features several activities including an exercise program, quilting, puzzles, dominos, card playing, and bingo. The Senior Center is also available for various events.

Residents of Elwood take pride in their community and play an active role in its care. The local newspaper keeps residents informed of local news, sports, funerals, and coming events. The people of Elwood have worked hard to keep their fire department and emergency medical staff well equipped. There is also an excellent library as well as three churches located in town.

Elwood is very proud of its local school system. We have a Kindergarten through 12th grade building that includes the services needed by the students of the community. The school has approximately 245 students enrolled for the 2012-2013 school year. The board has strived to keep the school updated with the latest technology. In the last five years an addition was built to the school building.

We welcome you to one of the nicest town in Nebraska and hope that you keep us in mind when planning a vacation or relocation.

Sincerely,

Elwood Chamber of Commerce
