About Maryville


Whether you are a lifelong native of Nodaway County, a newcomer to our county seat community, or a prospective resident or business operator, you get a comfortable feeling from the instant you first arrive in Maryville.

More specifically, there is a welcoming atmosphere which demonstrates that Maryville’s residents are interested in their long-time neighbors, visitors to the community, and those who might come to decide that this could very well be the best place in the Midwest to live, work and raise a family. It’s certainly one of the best, that much is certain.

Our Northwest Missouri State University has been recognized nationally for its innovative “electronic campus,” its strong educational reputation and its competitive intercollegiate athletic programs. Our fertile valleys make for a historically rich agricultural economy. A vibrant, and growing, industrial community completes the making of Maryville the focal point of Northwest Missouri, southwestern Iowa and northeastern Nebraska.

Add to those attractive attributes a diversified array of city parks and recreational facilities, including the 3,000-acre Mozingo Lake Park area; outstanding elementary, secondary and technical schools; and a schedule of annual art, music and other cultural events and you will readily recognize that Maryville is the place you have been seeking.

State-of-the-art medical and health-care facilities are anchored by St. Francis Hospital and Health Services and augmented by metropolitan specialties and facilities in nearby St. Joseph, Kansas City, Des Moines and Omaha. St. Francis Mental Health Services and the St. Francis Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine practices are other reasons to take a second look at Maryville.

Whether you anticipate opening a new business, joining one of our many existing professional or retail businesses, or looking for the opportune place to relocate after retirement, we think you will like what Maryville has to offer.

So, whatever your reason for considering Maryville as a part of your life or business, we thank you for your interest and we promise to do everything within our power to make you welcome — today and for always.
