Holden is a small rural town located about 50 miles southeast of Kansas City, Missouri and about 25 miles southwest of Warrensburg, Missouri, home of the University of Central Missouri.
Two state highways intersect the town, Hwy 58 and Hwy 131.
Traveling east from Kansas City:
Take US Hwy 50 east from Lee’s Summit toward Sedalia. About 24 miles you will come to a flashing yellow light (Pittsville) and turn right (south) on Hwy 131. Follow Hwy 131 south for about 9 miles into Holden. After crossing the railroad tracks take a left (east) on the first cross street (McKissock) by Sonic. You now see the back of the Community Activity Center. Continue 2 blocks to South Market St, it is a one-way street going north so DO NOT turn right, instead you may park in the lot straight ahead or pull through the lot back on to South Market St and if parking is available, park in front of the building.
Traveling west from Warrensburg/Sedalia:
Take US Hwy 50 west from Warrensburg toward Lee’s Summit. About 5 miles west of Warrensburg at the flashing yellow light, turn left (south) on Hwy 58. Continue traveling south on Hwy 58 past Centerview and stay right on the curve at F junction. Now traveling west on Hwy 58 continue for about 8 miles into the east edge of Holden. The highway curves back to the north and in about 8 blocks you will come to a stop sign at Second Street. Turn left (west) and continue for 2 blocks to South Market Street. Turn right (north) and you should now see the Community Activity Center.
South Market Street is a one way street (south to north). You may park on both sides of the street. There is limited parking in front of the CAC but there are two large parking lots for larger events. One is an asphalt lot directly in front (east) of the Community Activity Center and the other is a gravel lot directly behind (west) the facility.
