We want to hear from you! Please contact us with any questions.  Be it home related or in regard to a specific building located in University City.



We would love for you to join our organization and become a member.  Your membership provides you with monthly newsletters and helps us to put on events throughout the year.


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.
