History of this St. Louis County Real Estate

Creve Coeur translates to “broken heart” in French. The neighborhood gets its name from the legend of an Indian princess whose heart was broken by a French trapper. She leapt from a ledge overlooking Creve Coeur Lake, which then reconfigured itself in the shape of a broken heart.

Creve Coeur started out a farming community by the side of a centuries-old Indian trail linking the Mississippi River to the Missouri River. Wagons heading west took settlers and businessmen to new lands. Some, of course, settled in the area, and Creve Coeur today has developed into a thriving town and high-tech destination.
