Until 1802, the area located ten miles southwest of Saint Louis was known as the Dry Ridge to the fur trappers and Dakota, Osage, and Missouri Native Americans. Once a part of the Louisiana Territory, the land has belonged to the English, Spanish, and the French at one time or another. Today, that land is a suburban community known as Webster Groves, Missouri. Its convenient location along the Pacific Railroad line led to the suburb’s development when congestion, overcrowding, and unhealthy conditions caused people to flee Saint Louis in the late nineteenth-century. When Webster Groves was first developed, it was promoted as the Queen of the Suburbs, offering an easy commute to downtown St. Louis, and beautiful suburban homes in a quiet, almost rural atmosphere.
Webster Groves resulted from the merging of Selma, Tuxedo Park, Webster Park, Old Orchard, and Webster in 1896. Since that time the community has continued to attract new residents with its myriad single-family homes dotting picturesque tree-lined streets. With easy access to nearby big-city amenities and quiet suburban charm, Webster Groves offers the best of both worlds and is a genuine live, work, and play community. Speaking of playing, Webster Groves possesses twenty parks comprising more than one hundred and twenty acres. Additionally, the city is home to many conveniently located public schools, including Ambrose Family Center, Avery Elementary School, Bristol Elementary, Clark Elementary, Edgar Road Elementary, Hudson Elementary, Steger Sixth Grade Center, Hixson Middle School, and Webster Groves High School.
