History and Landmarks

The City of Ballwin was incorporated in 1950 but was originally part of a 400 acre Spanish land grant given to Ballwin's founder, John Ball in 1800. Manchester Road, established as the first State Road in St Louis County in 1835, became a mail route to the newly established Missouri State Capital in Jefferson City. This route passed by John Ball's property and he wisely took advantage of the proximity to his property and established the town of Ballwin in 1837. John Ball died in 1859 and is now buried in the Manchester Methodist Church Yard Cemetery located on Woodsmill Road.

The Barn at Lucerne, located on Kehrs Mill Road at Clayton Road in Ballwin, is a St. Louis County Landmark. It began in 1906 as part of a farm owned by Henry Bopp as two brick barns that were supposedly built from brick salvaged from the 1904 World's Fair. The next owner, Will Schisler, established a dairy farm in 1916 and built the main 50,000 square foot barn and silos. This dairy was eventually taken over by the St Louis based Sealtest Dairy. Today, the Barn at Lucerne has been restored, as well as redeveloped as a mixed use retail space with shops, offices and restaurants. Other Landmarks include the Bacon Log Cabin on Henry Avenue, the Harrison-Schmidt-Dahlke Log House in Vlasis Park, and the Salem Methodist Church on Manchester Road.
