Walnut Grove MO Homes For Sale

Walnut Grove, MO, is as quaint of a city as the one depicted in the classic movie, “Groundhog Day,” but in Walnut Grove, the possum takes center stage. Established in 1859, officials named the city after the wild black walnut groves in the area. Prior to the name of Walnut Grove, locals called the area “Possum Trot,” which was a reference to the many possums in the area. As part of its history, the city hosts “Possum Trot Days,” a celebration in September. New residents and longtime residents also enjoy the Pickin’ in the Park in June, a bluegrass festival. For people searching for a home to buy in the Springfield, Missouri area, Walnut Grove stands out in Greene County as a country gem.

Enjoying the small town vibe

Census reports in 2010 show Walnut Grove includes just 665 people, but the number of households and families grows every year. The small city was home for Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Ken Gables, who was born and later died in Walnut Grove. People who love country scenery often fall in love with Walnut Grove.

Taking a scenic bicycle ride

After moving to Walnut Grove, many cyclists enjoy taking US Bike Route 76, which goes down Main Street. People who run, walk and bike also experience the beautiful Ozarks by taking the Frisco Highline Trail, a 35-mile long trail that goes from Springfield to Bolivar. The historic rail line provides a safe place for families and individuals to take in the scenes while remembering history. Historians say Harry Truman rode in a private railroad car as part of his Whistle-stop campaign for re-election. Although the train tracks and train stations are gone, people cross 16 bridges and pass by woods, pastures, cattle and deer.

Walnut Grove residents also love to host yard sales, which means new home buyers find all the vintage and shabby chic décor items they want for their new homes. If you can't find what you need at local yard sales, attend an auction event. At Realty Executives by Realty Choice, we show homes in quaint cities such as Walnut Grove.
