About St. Louis, Missouri
The second-largest city in Missouri, USA, is St. Louis. It is close to where the Missouri and Mississippi rivers meet. The city alone had a population of 301,578 in 2020, but its bi-state metropolitan region, which includes Illinois, was expected to have more than 2.8 million people living there. It is the second-biggest metropolitan area in Illinois and the largest metropolitan area in Missouri.
The region had been inhabited by many Native American societies for thousands of years before to the arrival of the Europeans. It was a regional epicenter of the Mississippian culture, centered at Cahokia to the east of the river, and it spread throughout the continent along the Mississippi and its tributaries from roughly 900 to 1500 CE.
French fur traders Gilbert Antoine de St. Maxent, Pierre Laclède, and Auguste Chouteau, who were all from New Orleans, created St. Louis on February 14, 1764. It was given the name Louis IX after King Louis IX of France, and it immediately rose to prominence as the French Illinois Country’s regional hub. After losing the Seven Years’ War in 1764, France was compelled to hand over its possessions east of the Mississippi to Great Britain. It gave Spain its presumptive claim to the territory west of the river. Louisiana was returned by Spain to France in 1800. Napoleon gave up on North America three years later and sold the continent to the US as part of the Louisiana Purchase.
The city was the point of embarkation for the Corps of Discovery on the United States-sponsored Lewis and Clark Expedition to explore the Louisiana Purchase. In the 19th century, St. Louis developed as a major port on the Mississippi River; from 1870 until the 1920 census, it was the fourth-largest city in the country.
