Whether you are a new University City resident, a ‘lifer’, or just an interested St. Louisan, you would have to search far and wide to find a community with a richer history.
The Historical Society of University City studies and collects materials and
presents programs on the history of U. City.
From our incorporation in 1906 by extraordinary businessman, city founder and planner Edward Gardner Lewis, to ‘The Loop’, one of St. Louis’ favorite entertainment and shopping spots, our society is dedicated to preserving our history, and holding events and creating publications that highlight the history that made us what we are today. We also have books, booklets, and other items for sale.
