Moberly became known as “The Magic City”, springing form the prairie in the late 1800’s as the railroad moved west. Today, the Norfolk/Southern line remains a large part of Moberly’s business climate, running from Kansas City, Chicago, and St. Louis through the Moberly yards. Moberly, the largest city in Randolph County, is located near the center of the state, almost equally distanced between Kansas City and St. Louis. Four-lane US Highway 63 runs from the Iowa border south through Columbia allowing easy access to Interstate 70 and four lane US Highway 36 creating the competitive advantage for Moberly’s businesses allowing for just-in-time delivery to the entire nation. Moberly currently has building space as well shovel-ready sites available for new or expanding industry.
