City Facts for Glendale, MO
Named after a small rail station between Webster Groves and Kirkwood on the Missouri Pacific Railroad, the city of Glendale began as a small community of elegant country homes and estates. While city limits remained fluid in the early years, by 1932 the boundaries were firmly established and remain today: Manchester Road to the north, Lockwood Boulevard on the South, and the city limits of Kirkwood and Webster Groves on the west and east.
Today, the city is committed to preserving the architectural integrity of new and renovated housing, and local ordinances require preservation of green space and design compatibility with the period and details of existing neighborhoods. The city’s main north/south route, Sappington Road, is one of the country’s oldest roads.
Glendale was incorporated in 1916 as an exclusively residential city. It is well-known for its gracious homes, and families find it a very desirable neighborhood to live in. Most housing here is single-family and growth is carefully controlled and planned. Many of the homes date back to before the Civil War. Like many “suburbs” of the time, country homes were built here as summer retreats for St. Louis’ wealthiest families. Many of the homes still stand. The oldest, the A.W. Schisler home, was constructed in 1808. The simple log cabin was first remodeled in 1936 when an addition was built to complement the two original rooms. Over the years, additional rooms were added, making the house a fascinating example of the ever-evolving architectural history of the Greater St. Louis area.
Modern Glendale expresses its close community spirit via a variety of clubs and activities. The city is home to the gracious and beautiful Algonquin Country Club, a social and recreational organization that attracts members from many parts of the county. Community service is almost taken for granted in Glendale, where the traditions of friendliness and philanthropy have always prevailed.
