Frontenac's History

Frontenac is a wealthy inner-ring suburb of St. Louis, Missouri. The signature landmark is Plaza Frontenac, a high-end mall featuring many prominent retailers such as Sakes Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and Tiffany & Co., among others. The population was 3,482 at the 2010 census.

The community name is inspired by the New France governor Louis de Buade de Fronteanc. Benjamin and Lora Wood, who laid out the community’s core called Frontenac Estates, that consisted of 26 two-acre estates, had made frequent trips to Quebec. The community was incorporated as 217 acres in 1947 and annexed another 967 acres in 1948. The community still consists mostly of houses on one-acre lots. French architecture is encouraged in design.
