Notice: Downtown Liberty is getting a new "streetscape" beginning early May.
Please Click Here for Directions to James Country during the project!

The City of Liberty has seen fit to start work on Kansas Street before they complete the street project on our block of North Main - and they will close Kansas Street at Prairie beginning August 22. If you are coming to Liberty from the south or west, you will need to work around this closure.

#1, you can proceed up I-35 past Exit #16, to Exit #20, the Highway 69 exit to Excelsior Springs. At the first light, turn right on to Lightburne Street. Follow Lightburne Street about 2 miles, into Liberty. At Franklin Street, turn right - this will bring you to the Square. At that point, you can park around the Square and follow the directions to walk to our door. It also lets you avoid the horrible congestion on Highway 152/Kansas Street.

If you should miss Franklin Street, keep going 2 more blocks to Mill Street - turn right to Water Street and then turn right again. This will bring you to the Square.

#2, If you come in to Liberty from Highway 152, Exit #16, this becomes Kansas Street. At Prairie Street, turn right to Mill St. Turn left of Mill and follow it to Water Street, about 3 blocks. Turn left on Water and this will also bring you to the Square. At this point, park around the Square where you can and follow the directions.

If you are coming from the East or North, your route is not affected. And, as always, if you have any problems getting to us, just give the store a call at 816 781 9473.

We truly appreciate you, our customers, for bearing with us during this project. What should have been completed in six weeks now drags on into week 12!!!

James Country Mercantile reproductions chosen for display

Jean Warren, proprietor of James Country Mercantile, has made several reproduction quilts, also referred to as "soldier comforts", deemed accurate enough for educational display. One quilt is on display at the Andersonville Prison Musuem. The quilt featured at left will be on display in the cabin at the James Farm Home and Museum.
