History[edit]

Glenaire was originally the location of a resort in between the cities of Liberty and Claycomo. The resort was called Urban Lake and was home to a 14-acre (57,000 m2) lake that was open for recreational activities. The lake disappeared when the dam burst in 1945. Subsequently, in 1950 after petitioning the Clay County courts, the residents of the area celebrated the incorporation of The Village of Glenaire. In 1994 Glenaire became a 4th class city, shedding its status as a village.
