Liberty, MO Real Estate, Homes For Sale, School & Area Information

Liberty is a city located in Clay County, Missouri and is also considered a suburb of Kansas City, Missouri. Its close proximity to KCMO means that the residents of Liberty can enjoy a local home-town feel, while also having access to the cultural and recreational advantages of a big city. The city of Liberty has the honor of being recognized in August 2011 as the 7th Best Place to Live in America by CNN/Money Magazine.

Connection to transportation outlets makes Liberty an excellent choice for businesses, shopping, and recreation. Several major employers reside in Liberty including the Hallmark distribution warehouse, Liberty Industrial Park, Smurfit-Stone Container Corporation, and the Heartland Meadows light industrial park. Cultural and recreational venues include the Liberty Performing Arts Theater, Corbin Theater, the Liberty Community Center, and the Fountain Bluff Sports Complex. William Jewell College, founded in 1849, is a nationally recognized undergraduate liberal arts college and also hosts a myriad of cultural events such as music, performing arts, and theater. The Liberty Square offers an interesting assortment of retail shops including antique and gift stores.

Liberty was founded in 1822, 18 years after Lewis and Clark passed through what we now call Clay County. Liberty is the home to seven historic districts and over 240 preserved homes and buildings including the historic Liberty Jail Site, the Clay County Museum, and the Jesse James Bank Museum.

    Fountain Bluff Sports Complex has a new name! Capital Federal has bought the naming rights for five years and the sports complex will now be known as Capital Federal Sports Complex of Liberty. Another nice addition is that all of the playing surfaces have been changed to synthetic turf. Hopefully no more rainouts!

    Today, January 15th, is National Bagel Day and do yourself a huge favor and head over to Meshuggah Bagels in the Liberty Commons. Made fresh daily, Meshuggah offers a variety of bagels, schmears ( cream cheese) and toppings like smoked lox (salmon). Decadent and flavorful, Meshuggah is not a local business you want to sleep on! Also,on holidays Meshuggah will offer challah bread, which sells out fast!

    Liberty peeps and all KC peeps, as well...we are getting a Red Door Woodfired Grille in Liberty by Price Chopper! They are set to open in Fall of 2019. My family had the privilege of celebrating Mother's Day at the Brookside location and it has excellent service. They have delish Bloody Mary's and all entrees were devoured by all of us. I cannot wait to go back. Having them in Liberty is a huge win for our sweet community!

    If you haven't been to Catfish & Tater in beautiful downtown Liberty, you must go!!! Heather and crew are always delightful, very helpful and always welcoming. This darling place only gets limited quantities of their items so you will not look like everyone at the party or restaurant. Catfish & Tater has excellent sales and is always new with fresh little items. In addition to their Liberty storefront, she also has a fabulous Facebook page/Instagram page and Website - so there is no excuses for you to not shop there. If you go, please tell Heather and/or Paige that I sent you. Happy shopping!
