I've been living in Republic Missouri for 5 years with my 3 kids and wife. Republic has a small town atmosphere and convenience of having all of the restaurants and recreational parks needed to enjoy great family time and interaction with friends. The school systems in Republic are excellent and the teachers and other faculty members have been very helpful and the continuously giving good education to my three kids.
The best areas in Republic are around JR Martin Park and the neighborhoods in that general vicinity where there are excellent houses constructed and priced very reasonably. Republic Missouri is historically renowned for the Elijah Teague Anderson House that is a registered historic site that is located within the city. The other nice areas are around Republic Park and Recreation. If you're looking to enjoy a smaller town with a lot of amenities, shops and, other places to enjoy a comfortable life away from the hustle and bustle of larger metropolitan cities, Republic would be a great city for you to live and raise your family.
