About Maugansville

Even though there is no mayor, police, or other city officers, the residents of Maugansville manage to get along.

Maugansville is not incorporated and has no real town government.

When money is needed for something such as street lights, sidewalks or fire protection, the residents gather together and try to raise the necessary funds.

In the past, women would prepare suppers to make money for community needs. Sometimes residents would simply donate money. 

Today, organizations such as the Ruritan Club and Goodwill Volunteer Fire Co. contribute to the welfare of Maugansville residents.  

Isn’t it nice to know that there are still places where people can get along?
