Mississippian mound builders. The remains of a village were uncovered during the construction of I-70 in 1954 and a street near the site was later named Mound Drive after the mounds built by the villagers.
One of the first documented sources about European settlers in the area is a Spanish census from 1791, which documented a land grant.
St. Peters was named for a Jesuit mission established there.
In 1895, music was a binding factor for the area, with a well-known cornet band.
Throughout most of the twentieth century, St. Peters was a small farming town. As recently as 1970, St. Peters had a population of only 486. The population rapidly increased to 15,700 by 1980 and within the span of a decade the community changed from a small rural town to a more suburban community. The city continued its rapid growth through the 1980s and by 1990 had a population of 40,660. St. Peters population increased to an estimated 52,575 as of 2010. St.Peters celebrated its 50th year as a city in 2009, and marked its 100th year as a town in 2010, having become a town in 1910 and a city in 1959.
The city has a lot of veterans as residents, therefore many memorial locations have been set up. In front of City Hall there is a WWII fountain and flag display; along Willott Rd./Jungermann Rd. there is a Vietnam memorial containing over 1,000 bricks listing Missouri residents who died in the war and a Korean War monument as well. The City Hall memorial is the centerpiece for several veteran’s ceremonies held throughout the year: Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day and Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

Making a decision about your eyewear goes beyond good vision and makes a statement about who you are. Your decision affects how you see and also how you want to be seen by others. But with so many different styles to choose from, getting the right look for your face and your lifestyle can be overwhelming.
There are times when you may prefer contact lenses over eyeglasses for correcting your vision. Not only can eyeglasses get in the way when playing sports, but we also understand that sometimes you want to present your face as it is – with no accessories.
