I live in Battlefield. The earlier descriptions are pretty accurate. The lack of retail/restaurant is due mainly to the fact that there is no pass through traffic. That will all change in the next 10 years or so when/if the north-south corridor (West By-pass/FF) gets extended to Hwy 14 to the south. Then it will become the primary corridor into Springfield for all of Western Christian County.

It is a wonderful place to live, and it is starting to see some great changes. There are new businesses coming to town, including Godfather's Pizza, so it is on the brink of some really awesome growth into the future. If you haven't been there, you should check it out. It is the Scenic Gateway to Wilson Creek Battlefield ... home of a major civil war. I live there and love it!

Default I don't agree with 'hardest hit by any storms'

There are a lot of young families so it's a good place to raise kids. What I like least about the area is it seems to always be hardest hit by any storms that may be in the area.
We have lived in a subdivision right next to Battlefield, and moved there shortly after the tornado hit in 2002 (?) I don't recall any other storms hitting that area prior to that, or even after that, so let's be fair. Sorry, but this 'struck a nerve' with me, as when we had our house on the market this past year and were on the verge of making a sale when the buyer's so-called 'friend' convinced them that they should by a basement home for the tornadoes. Please... you can't judge an area on the fact that ONE tornado came through...

I am hoping when we re-list our home for sale here shortly that our nice little neighborhood doesn't get the reputation for storms that it doesn't deserve.

Are property taxes cheaper in Battlefield, Nixa or Ozark?

What business's are in Battlefield? or do you have to drive to get to a Walmart?

Moving in October and can't decide on Battlefield, Nixa, Ozark. We want a home on land around 175,000

Heaton,

To get an idea of the difference, you can call the Christian County assessors office and ask them for the tax rate and formula for a $175K home in each city. It will be very close.

Well I happen to know there has been and always will be Tornados in the area,just can't help but be.Its just the lay of the land there,this is why I was told the Indians wouldn't camp where Springfield is because the Tornados would follow the valley.Not saying there will be F3's but there will be Tornados.

At the same time Battlefield got blowed away we had an F3 headed for us,killed two people before it got to us,split up into three smaller ones,went around us,regrouped and killed another person just past us.I'm in the hills and have seen 4 Tornados in the last 16 years here.

Oh I use to Farm in Battlefield before it was a town and seen two Tornados in that time.
