This is the second modern time town laid out on the F. & M. V. rail road in Seward county. It was founded in 1887 and bears the name of one of Seward's most prosprous business men, Hon. John F. Goehner, who represented this senatorial district in the state senate in 1884, and did very much towards securing the C. & N. W. railway line through the county, the town of Goehner being named in his honor. It is located in -K- precinct, almost in the center of both the precinct and the county, is seven miles north east of Beaver Crossing and nine miles south west of Seward.
