The Best of … Town & Country

Town and Country may be thought of as one of St. Louis’ newer neighborhoods, but it actually has roots stretching back to the late 19th century. The area originally was settled as a farming town called Altheim, with a one-room schoolhouse and a post office housed in a log cabin. It officially was established as the Village of Town and Country in the mid-20th century. The neighborhood is rich in history, fun activities, green spaces and interesting sights worth seeing.
