The village is located on a small hill to the west of the valley of Wierzyca. Te archaeological research has shown the features of an ancient settlement in this area. The name of the village appeared for the first time in the written sources in 1282 as Gogolevo, then as Goggelow in 1342, as Gogolewo in 1597. In the Middle Ages, it was owned by a Michael, who was deprived of goods in Gogolewo for treason.
The Prince Mściwoj II in 1282 gave Gogolewo to the bishop of Kujawy, Wojciech. In terms of ownership, the village was owned by bishops, and then the chapter of Kujawy until 1772, i.e., to the first partition of Poland. The Prussian government took over the property and sold it to the landowners.
In the second half of the XIX century the paved road was created in the village from Gniew to Skórcz. In 1929, on the initiative of Maximillian Rogaczewski and Władysław Ciesielski, the Volunteer Fire Brigade was established.
The celebration of the Kociewo Palm Sunday have been taking place here since 2006. This colourful procession with stately palms carried by the residents of Gogolewo and the surrounding area, dressed in costumes of Kociewo, is a view, which stays in your memory for a long time.
