Missouri Valley Real Estate & Community Information

Missouri Valley Real Estate & Community Information

Missouri Valley is a city located in Harrison County in Iowa and is home to over 2800 residents.  It’s origins go back to 1867 when the railway was extended to the area.  The city got its name from the Missouri River. Missouri Valley was originally known as St John’s Township and was located 1 mile south of the modern city.  When the railway came through, the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad decided to avoid the low level land, so they went north. And so the town followed suit and moved to be closer ot the railway.

Shopping & Dining

Despite the city’s smaller size, there’s plenty of places to shop and dine.  Shopko Hometown is the local drug and department store.  Antique lovers will enjoy picking out old treasures at Missouri Valley Antiques.  Get the latest cell phone at Heartland Cellular.  And keep your Missouri valley home in shape with Ace hardware.

And you don’t need to leave town to get great food.  The 50’s called and they said to visit Penny’s Diner, where classic dining is alive and well.  They serve up classic breakfasts, sandwiches, and burgers – everything you’d expect from a 50’s diner, along with sitting at the bar to eat.  And if Chinese food is your thing, then Bamboo Village has the good, hot Chinese food you’re craving. And for desert, there’s Dairy Den, bringing back your childhood memories of frozen goodies and soft serve ice cream.  Also make sure you try out Taco John’s, Junction Café, and Loess Moose Bar & Grill.
