Bordered by Hampton Avenue, Chippewa Street, and River de Peres, St. Louis Hills holds the distinction as the last, large subdivision in the city. Filled with gingerbread bungalows and two-story ranches, the neighborhood is filled with personality and curb appeal.   


St. Louis Hills is rich in its architecture, strategic location, and its history. “Country living in the City” was the phrase used to market St. Louis Hills in the 1930’s, since St. Louis Hills was so far west of any other residential or commercial buildings located within the City limits.

Some 80 years later, the rich history and tradition of St. Louis Hills lives on, and the St. Louis Hills Neighborhood Association is formally trying to improve its historical focus on what is considered by many to be the most desirable neighborhood in the City of St. Louis.


In close proximity to interstates 44, 60, and 55, St. Louis Hills allow residents to move freely in and out if the city.
