Chillicothe, Missouri, has all the advantages of being a "city in the country." This Northwest Missouri community offers its residents all the amenities and facilities of a larger city while maintaining the advantages of "country life". As big-city residents and businesses have tired of big city problems and overcrowding, more people and industries have begun to "return to the land," including relocation to Chillicothe. This is the heartland of America where the work ethic and quality of life are strong, and the labor force is the backbone of solid industrial growth.
