“Church Purchases Kansas City Land,” Ensign, Feb. 1979, 79
A tract of 4,250 acres of land in and near Kansas City, Missouri, has been purchased by an investment arm of the Church. Announcement of the purchase was made at a luncheon in Kansas City in December.
Elder Howard W. Hunter of the Quorum of the Twelve, chairman of the Church Investment Advisory Committee, said the land is being purchased as a long-term investment. The tract was assembled and sold by a Kansas City attorney in behalf of a group of Kansas City businessmen.
The tract, in Clay County, Missouri, is about ten miles northeast of the Kansas City city hall. Most of the land is being farmed, and probably will continue to be.
