Gladstone is located in Clay County, which was organized on January 2, 1822 and was named after Henry Clay who was the U.S. Representative from Kentucky. Gladstone was originally named as Linden. It adopted its present name in 1952. The city is informally nicknamed as Happy Rock.

A question that got asked was :
Q. What’s the difference between an estate sale and an estate auction?
A. The purpose of estate sales, sometimes referred to as “tag” sales, and estate auctions is similar: to sell the contents of a home. It is the procedure that is different. The estate sale managers, or their employees, decide what price to put on each item. They write the asking price on a tag or label and attach it to the item. If items don’t sell the first day, the prices are reduced. At auction, the selling price is determined by the bidders, not the auctioneer.
You have the opportunity to preview the items to be sold before the sale starts at an auction. It is always to your benefit to thoroughly inspect anything that you might bid on, checking it for authenticity and condition. At a tag sale, especially if you are one of the first in line when the sale opens, you may not have time to thoroughly examine your purchases until you get them home. Someone could purchase the item while you are still looking it over.
Tag sales provide the best selection of merchandise when the sale starts, and the pickings get slimmer as the sale progresses. I’ve known some insistent shoppers to get in line at 4:00 A.M. for a good sale, just so they could be in the first rush through the door. Keep in mind that even if you are the first one in, the second shopper may head into a different room from you and find the bargain of the decade. Auctions allow everyone the same opportunity to purchase whatever is in that sale and you don’t have to stand in line for hours to get in.
