So far in 2019 the Jefferson City Area Board of Realtors has SOLD 185 homes. To compare, this time last year, in 2018, that number was 220. I think this is a little lower than last year, because of all the harsh and wet weather we have had in the last few months.
If you’re like me and enjoy listening to live music on the weekends occasionally, you need to check out some of the local bars and restaurants around Jefferson City. I used to think there wasn’t much live music to listen to around mid-Missouri, but there are quite a number of places that have artists playing on the weekends and even some during the weekdays.
These places offer many different genres of music making it easy to find something you’d enjoy listening to. Hooks Sports Bar and Grill, The Bridge, The Mission, Twin Bridges, Chicks Tap Room, Spectators, Bones, and High Street Pub are just a few of the places around town to find live music.
Exciting news for the Capital City, The Bicentennial Bridge is now a project in motion! The Bridge will provide a pedestrian walking and bike path that reconnects the City of Jefferson City, MO with its historic relationship to the Missouri River.

I am an avid recycler. I don't recall when I first started, but it seems that as long as there has been a facility that would accept my used items I've taken them. As it does with most people, it all started out innocently enough; I recycled aluminum cans, glass, plastics (#1 and #2), paper, cardboard, and tin cans. Where I might diverge from the general population is that I will recycle everything that falls into these categories.
For the second year HHC Community Outreach will have their annual drive through light festival at Binder Park in Jefferson City. The lightshow will run from December 1st through December 30th. The hours will be from 6-9 everyday, except Monday. You can take Rainbow over to Henwick, winding you around Binder Lake to see the lights. The $20 entry fee (per car) will go to local nonprofits including Homemaker Health Care.
So far this year, there have been 1,473 NEW LISTINGS. Last year, at this time, there were 1,440 New Listings. We are running about the same as the previous year, but a little up. Last year, in the month of August, there were 123 Homes Under Contract. This August, there were 153 HOMES UNDER CONTRACT. A nice increase since the same time in 2017.
