Welcome to Webster Groves, MO

 

Webster at a Glance  In the late 19th century, overcrowding, congestion, and unhealthy conditions in St. Louis prompted urban residents to leave the city for quieter, safer surroundings. In 1892 the developers of Webster Park, promoted the new community as the "Queen of the Suburbs," offering residents superb housing options in a country-like atmosphere and a close commute to downtown St. Louis jobs. Since then, Webster Groves’ tree-lined streets and abundance of single-family homes have continued to attract people to the area as a "great place to live, work and play".

Yet, Webster Groves is not solely the wealthy commuter suburb that early developers planned for. The City of Webster Groves is both geographically and economically diverse which is evident in the variety of its neighborhoods and in the cooperation and willingness of community members from all walks of life to work together toward common goals.

Visitors to Webster Groves are usually impressed by two features above all else: the trees and the homes. Nestled among clusters of elm, oak, and maple trees are gorgeous homes boasting large wrap-around porches, second and third stories, gingerbread trim, and abundant, verdant lawns.

Historic Webster  Webster has received the "Tree City USA" award for 15 years and is often compared to the historic areas of New England. Approximately 300 houses are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and more than 100 homes have received the "Century Home" honor awarded by the Webster Groves Historical Society to homes at least 100 years old.

History of Webster Groves

 

Early History
Ten miles southwest of Saint Louis was an area known as the Dry Ridge to Missouri, Osage, and Dakota Indians and fur trappers until 1802. In the early 1800s, this region, once a part of the Louisiana Territory, was changing from Spanish to French ownership and a system of land grants was inaugurated to promote immigration. During the early period of Spanish rule, officials gave land to settlers as a check against the English.

A Land Grant - As part of this program, in 1802 Gregorie Sarpy was granted 6,002 acres by Charles de Hautte Delassus, the last Spanish Lieutenant governor. The land grant covered the major area now known as Webster Groves.

Development as a Suburb
Webster Groves' location on the Pacific Railroad line led to its development as a suburb. In the late 19th century, overcrowding, congestion, and unhealthy conditions in Saint Louis prompted urban residents to leave the city for quieter, safer surroundings.

In 1892 the developers of Webster Park, an affluent community which would soon become the City Of Webster Groves, promoted the new community as the Queen Of The Suburbs, offering residents superb housing options in a country-like atmosphere, as well as a swift commute to downtown Saint Louis jobs.

As a suburban municipality, Webster Groves has its origins as five separate communities along adjacent railroad lines. Webster, Old Orchard, Webster Park, Tuxedo Park, and Selma merged in 1896 in order to implement public services and develop a unified city government.

A Great Place to Live, Work, and Play
Since that time, Webster Groves' tree-lined streets and abundance of single family homes have continued to attract people to the area as a "great place to live, work and play," not solely for the wealthy commuter suburb that early developers envisioned but for families that cut across all socioeconomic boundaries.

The geographic and economic diversity of Webster Groves is evident in the variety of neighborhoods and its successes is rooted in the cooperation and willingness of community members from all walks of life to work together toward common goals.
