Goodwell is a small town just 10 miles up the road from Guymon, Ok. Oklahoma Panhandle State University and it's students occupy the larger part of the town. Legend has it that when the citizens of the Panhandle Region decided to build a college, most figured that Guymon would be the best place to locate, but the people of Guymon would not hear of it. They were afraid that sin and poverty would be brought along with the college. So a compromise was made. The college would be located 10 miles outside of Guymon, so that the business owners could reap the benefits of a ripened economy, without having to live with the college students. Although the college did help Guymon's economy, it also helped it's own. Along with the building of the OPSU came the building of the entire town of Goodwell. The growth of Goodwell is directly related to the growth of the college, which is one of the best four-year institutions around.
