Fenton History

Settlers had been in the Fenton area since the late 1770's taking up residence on Spanish land grants along both sides of the Meramec River. Jacques Clamorgan who arrived in 1791 received a land grant and ran a mineral spring on the west side of the Meramec in Fenton. William Lindsay Long, the founder of Fenton, purchased a land grant in 1818 and plotted the town of Fenton which is now known as "Old Town Fenton". William Long named Fenton after his grandmother. Other early residents of Fenton had names that are familiar today such as Vandover, Bowles and Rudder. In 1833, Sam Vandover purchased land on both sides of the Meramec so he could run a ferry across the river. It was located at the bottom of Ferry Street. The residents of Fenton petitioned the City of St Louis to have Gravois Road run through Fenton. In 1914 it was the first road in Missouri to be paved. It played an important role in the growth of the area. Gravois Road was used by stage coach lines, farmers taking their produce to market, cattle ranchers driving cattle and by settlers in covered wagons moving west.
