Established in 1853, Kirkwood, Missouri, was the first intentional commuter suburb developed west of the Mississippi River. As one of the four early St. Louis region commuter railroad suburbs, Kirkwood is tied to the railroad that is deeply entrenched in the city’s history and heritage. In fact, the city's existence is the direct result of the railroad, and it was named after the engineer, James Pugh Kirkwood, who was responsible for locating, surveying, and constructing the railroad. The community’s love affair with trains continues today as it pays tribute to its past with a historic train station listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Located in the heart of the city, Kirkwood Train Station was originally built in 1893 and today serves as a daily stop for Amtrak passenger trains.
Comprising nine square miles, Kirkwood is home to nearly twenty-eight thousand residents. In addition to its long, rich history, the community boasts exceptional City services, highly regarded public and private schools, lovely residential neighborhoods, and high property values. Kirkwood also offers more than three hundred acres of parks that possess features such as playgrounds, picnic sites, tennis courts, ball fields, an outdoor amphitheater, an ice rink, and an aquatic center. Further contributing to the appeal of Kirkwood, it has a downtown business district which is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places, hosts the farmers’ market, and encompasses several delightful shops and restaurants.
This family-friendly community is an excellent place to raise children and has St. Louis County’s oldest school district, chartered in 1865.
