The Historic Committee of the City of St. Peters is proud to present this commemorative history for the joint celebration of the Fiftieth Anniversary of our becoming an incorporated city in 1959 and the 100th anniversary of the incorporation of the then village as a town in 1910.
What you will find in these pages is a rich history that stretches back to the first French settlers along the Dardenne River. See how our community grew first into a vibrant village that was the hub of religious and social live, and a center of mercantile trade for the surrounding rich prairie farmland. Then learn how that small town grew rapidly, but with planning an purpose, into an exciting metropolis and one of America’s 100 Best Places to Live!
Illustrated with many never before seen photos we are proud to present to you, the colorful story of St. Peters, Missouri.
