Maplewood

Located at the intersection of Interstates 64 and 170 in the heart of the St. Louis metro area, Richmond Heights successfully melds “Progress with Tradition.” The latter component includes a diverse population of nearly 10,000 people from all walks of life; a wide array of well-maintained and attractive homes in established, desirable neighborhoods; quality public and private schools, and high-quality city services.

History

Maplewood was established around the turn of the 20th century. Maplewood was one of the early suburbs of St. Louis. Located just outside the city limits, Maplewood was located at the end of one of St. Louis’ streetcar lines and was also located near major railroads.

It was built as a bedroom community. Advertising suggested that people should get away from the city (in an era of common and sooty commercial, industrial, and domestic coal burning) and enjoy the fresh air of less densely populated areas like Maplewood. Maplewood’s historic residential areas were mostly built from 1900–1910 and a number of well-preserved homes remain. Several of these homes have remained in the same family for generations.

Maplewood is currently being revitalized by an influx of restaurants, businesses, and shops around Manchester Ave., Sutton Ave., and the Greenwood Historic District.
