Creve Coeur is recognized as one of the most culturally diverse cities in the United States and the third largest city in St. Louis County. Located on the Missouri River, home to the University of Missouri and Missouri State University, it is also known for its high quality of life.
French explorers began farming and fishing in the early 18th century, and fur trappers settled in the area in the early 19th century. The Lewis and Clark Expedition came when the United States acquired the area through the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. Although there are cabins that are more than 200 years old, including two still in Conway Park, the community has grown so much that the Missouri River routes through Creve Coeur and St. Louis County are now part of the city itself. It was home to the headquarters of Drury Hotels and Monsanto following Bayer's takeover of Monsanto in 2018.
Creve Coeur shares zip code 63141 with the neighboring town of Town and Country, and there is now an associated park, Conway Park, which houses the St. Louis County Museum of Natural History and is the site of the Missouri River Trail, a popular tourist attraction.
