The Background

Welcome to the City of Glenaire, Missouri, Community Webpage.  On September 13, 1950, the Village of Glenaire became an incorporated village.  In 1994, the Village of Glenaire became a fourth class city and thereafter known as the City of Glenaire.

The Glenaire City Hall/Clubhouse was established in 1921, known at that time as Urban Heights Community Club which was preceded by the Pleasant Valley Homemaker’s Club, organized in 1917.  The building was a barn donated by John Robert Smiley.  Mr. Smiley also gave the club a twenty-five year lease on the land.  The men of the community built a foundation for the barn, and over the years built on a kitchen and installed windows and doors appropriate for a clubhouse. It was Clay County’s first rural club building.  During its life it has served many purposes including a school for Glenaire children before Withers School was built.  In addition to a meeting place for City officials, the building has also been used for court sessions, church services, 4-H meetings, Girl Scouts meetings, voting, and private and public celebrations.  The City Hall/Clubhouse is now the voting poll for Glenaire residents.
