Best of … Clayton

When the City of St. Louis separated from St. Louis County, it necessitated a new home for the county court system. More than 100 acres were donated to create a county seat, and in the course of a few decades, it grew from forests and farmland into the bustling city of Clayton. Combining a metropolitan downtown with chic residential neighborhoods, Clayton is a hub of business, culture, dining and shopping.
