Huntleigh History and Landmarks
The Bridlespur Hunt Club, located in Defiance Missouri in St Charles County, was originally located in Huntleigh on Squires Lane. It also had a steeplechase course on the land that Plaza Frontenac now sits on. It was founded in 1927 by Edward E. Bakewell, Sr, a Huntleigh resident, and August A. Busch, Sr. World War II suspended the activity at the club in Huntleigh and only resumed when Bridlespur was moved to its St. Charles County location.
Within the City of Huntleigh is a St. Louis County Landmark. It is the John P. Meyer House, built in 1937-1938, and was designed by the St. Louis born architect, Charles Eames who studied under the distinguished Finnish architect, Eliel Saarinen (father of Eero Saarinen). Eames later became famous for his furniture, some of which was used to furnish the home, films and exhibits.
