St. Peters, MO

St. Peters, Missouri has a total population of nearly 53,000.

St. Peters was founded by French traders in the late 18th Century, and grew into a prosperous farming community with the addition of German immigrants from 1830 to 1850. St. Peters incorporated as a town in 1910 and became a City of the Fourth Class under Missouri statutes in 1959. This new classification allowed St. Peters to issue bonds to build an infrastructure for water and wastewater treatment. In 1970, St. Peters population was 486, but the groundwork was set to handle amazing growth from 486 people in 1970 to 15,700 in 1980 to 40,660 in 1990 to nearly 53,000 today.

Today, St. Peters borders have expanded to about 22 square miles and their population is nearly 53,000. They have 25 parks and the REC-PLEX fitness and recreation complex.
