Where I Live

I love where I live. College town, lots of parks, not too big, not too small... good ol' Columbia, Missouri. The city has been ranked as high as the second-best place to live in the country by Money Magazine (according to Wikipedia), and I can understand why...

  • We have an excellent school system. We are the home to the University of Missouri, the largest university in the state, and two other state colleges, Columbia College and Stephens College. 
  • We have outstanding health care facilities with the University of Missouri Health System. 
  • The cost of living is low, abundant entertainment opportunities, and a very clean environment. 

What's not to love?

City Hall
The key hole structure in front of city hall is called "Keys to the City." The artist, Howard Meehan, wanted the onlooker to have a sense of empowerment when viewing the sculpture - as if every citizen had their own key to the city. I personally love the panels that have a montage of images from around the city. It's a great cultural piece for our community.
