Liberty Missouri: A Historically Rich Location

Living in Liberty Missouri was one of the better areas that I have experienced. Neighboring cities like Kansas City add to the number of activities in the area. Liberty is stellar in educational initiatives, employment resources, and housing developments. It is the home of the infamous Hallmark Cards distribution center. Crime rates are almost non-existent and the weather is overall decent, with over 5 steady months of warm climates. The William Jewell College is proudly located in Liberty, creating a population of almost 30,000. Liberty is continuously growing with flourishing subdivisions including Shawnee, Overland Park, and Lenexa.

There is so much to do, see, and partake in, within Liberty’s city limits. The city has an outstanding winery site, the Belvoir Winery as well as numerous historical districts. I love to visit areas in Liberty Missouri such as the Historic Downtown Liberty region at Courthouse Square. The community has rich culture as well as unique boutique stores, dining, a farmers market, and a rich Missouri heritage.
