From the 119-year-old train station to the bustling business district filled with restored architecture, Kirkwood, Missouri is a community steeped rich in history.
A short commute from downtown St. Louis, the accessibility of Kirkwood has always appealed to those seeking something more from St. Louis real estate. “As the first planned suburb west of the Mississippi River, and an early railroad commuter suburb, Kirkwood owes its very existence to the railroad,” according to the City of Kirkwood website.
It is this accessibility and the smart design of the walkable community that continues to attract new residents. For instance, quaint shops and restaurants line Kirkwood Road, along with nearby housing that ranges from urban condos to historic homes. For those interested in fresh produce, the Kirkwood Farmer’s Market on East Jefferson is a favorite of residents and visitors alike.

Residents have access to a vast assortment of facilities to include a community center with an ice rink, gym, theater and more. If you are a nature lover, be sure to check out the plentiful parks and the community garden.
