Creve Coeur History

The City of Creve Coeur was incorporated in 1949 but its long history began well before then. Once home to Native Americans and later French traders, Creve Coeur, meaning "broken heart" in French, has several legends as to how it got its name. One story tells of an Indian princess whose heart was broken by a lover. Another tells of the broken hearts of early settlers faced with the devastation caused by floods and illnesses that were once common in the area. Or its name could have come from nearby Creve Coeur Lake whose shape is reminiscent of a broken heart. A streetcar used to run from University City to Creve Coeur Lake bringing residents from St Louis City to the lake for a day of recreation. The lake is now part of the City of Maryland Heights.

The city of Creve Coeur built up around Central Plank Road which later became Olive Blvd. It was originally an Indian trail that ran on the ridge of high ground along the Missouri River. Extending all the way to the City of St Louis, it was important in bringing people looking for land out west in the county, as well as transporting goods to markets in St Louis.

Creve Coeur Landmarks

Several St. Louis County landmarks are located in the city of Creve Coeur. Two log cabins, the Herman H. Hackmann cabin, built in 1842, and the Clester cabin, considered one of the oldest buildings in St. Louis County, have been moved to a city park, Conway Park, and have been restored. Another landmark, the Lake School, was built in 1897 and was originally located in the town of Lake, or "Hog Hollow", and was moved in 1967 to its present location, Lake School Park. Lake School is a museum that can be toured by appointment only through the City of Creve Coeur. Relocated to Millennium Park, is another landmark, the Tappmeyer Farm House that was built in 1884 and once stood on a very large farm located at Olive and Ross Road.
