The 250-year-old city of St. Louis was founded by Pierre Laclede and Auguste Chouteau, who named it for Louis IX of France. Prior to its founding, the city was a center of Native American Mississippian culture. Its earthwork mounds on either side of the Mississippi River earned its nickname, the “Mound City.”
In 1904, St. Louis hosted the Louisiana Purchase Exposition, the World’s Fair, and the Summer Olympics. Since then, the city has celebrated the formation of many industrial companies and a vigorous revitalization effort, just a few of the reasons it received the World Leadership Award in 2006.
Today, the Gateway Arch provides the perfect frame for the city’s beautiful parks, industrial leaders, rich history, and wonderful people. The Cofman Townsley team is proud to call St. Louis home.
