History

1935 Warwick VillageThe Village SquareOne of the unique landmarks of Jefferson City!

The Village Square, originally Warwick Village, was a Coffee Shop and Cottage area built for central Missouri residents and out-of-towners.  Warwick Village was one of the first Motor Courts in central Missouri, built in 1935 along the design characteristics of the European Villages displayed at the Chicago World’s Fair in 1934.   Following WW-II, the 4-story Hotel building was added to the  compound and in it’s prime days lodged many elite businessman and politicians, including then Senator Harry S. Truman as well as many state legislators.

Today, the Village is completely renovated by it’s owners who purchased the property in near disrepair just 3 years ago and have totally refurbished, redesigned and rebuilt the large building that includes 7 executive suites:  2 executive office spaces (620 square feet), two-1 BR/1 BA apartments, two-2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartments, a penthouse suite and a brand new Coffeehouse that includes a deli restaurant. The owners desired to create a destination site satisfying many needs at one stop. The Village Square currently offers: Food, Drink, Beauty Care, Art Classes, Gift Shopping with Missouri Made gifts.

The owners of the Village created an atmosphere that is like no other in Jefferson City!
