The city of Richmond Heights, located in St. Louis County, is a community rich in history. Incorporated in 1913, Richmond Heights was established as a residential suburb of St Louis. Early residents included the McCutcheon, Barron, Niesen, Grove, Brennan, Gay, Buehning, and DeBolt families. The introduction of modern highways and commerce altered the city’s physical character, which prompted this publication. The authors hope this book encourages the citizens of Richmond Heights—and others—to embrace the city’s history and promote preservation of its historic resources.
