Chesterfield, Missouri is a conglomeration of six different communities, each with their own history and even their own post office. Bellefontaine (beautiful spring in French) was started in 1837 when August Hill arrived. The intersection of Olive Boulevard and Chesterfield Parkway would have been part of this community. Lake, Missouri used to be called Hog Hollow and was centered near mile marker eighteen on Olive Street Road. Gumbo was the community located where Chesterfield Airport Road and Long Road intersect, just twenty five miles from the bustling commerce of Saint Louis. Monarch was located along the railroad and included the corner of Eatherton Road and Centaur Road. Bonhomme (good man in French) was at the far west end of Olive Street Road near Howell’s Ferry Landing. Most of the development of Bonhomme was washed away when the Missouri River flooded at the end of the 19th century.
Colonel Justus Post’s Chesterfield started in 1817, after he moved to Missouri from Vermont. He arrived with plenty of money to spend and began to buy up the land. First he purchased the home and four hundred acre property of William and Polly Long. Post would buy up over twenty-one thousand acres of land before he was done. Post laid the plans for the community of Chesterfield, Missouri. He built himself a mansion in Chesterfield in 1822, and stayed in the area for thirty years before moving away.
In 1877, Christian Burkhardt started the Burkhardt’s Subdivision in Chesterfield on twenty-one acres near Olive Street Road. His son Edward built a row of brick bungalows in the subdivision around 1920, owned a mercantile store and served as president of the Farmer’s State Bank of Chesterfield. This bank, built in 1914, is the oldest commercial structure in the county. It is currently listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Antioch Baptist Church, started in 1841 and helped develop the African-American community in Chesterfield. The congregation was mixed white and black, but became primarily an African-American Church when it was re-built and renamed Mount Pleasant Baptist Church in 1860. It remained that way until the congregation gradually moved, and in 1922 built the Union Baptist Church.
Germans came to the area and started Saint Anthony’s Parish in Centaur. In 1923, the congregation built Ascension Parish on Santa Maria Drive in Chesterfield. The building that was Ascension is now called Godfrey Chapel.
One of the oldest historic buildings in Chesterfield is the Governor’s Mansion built in 1815-1817. Governor Bates was the second governor of Missouri. He named his mansion Thornhill, and he is buried there. This estate was included in the ninety-eight acres donated by Leicester and Mary Faust to the Parks System, now Faust Park. The remaining 102 acres were later purchased by Chesterfield to form the Faust Park Historic Village. Chesterfield has many architecturally historic buildings, including at least twenty “century houses”.
Today, this village of villages has grown to a modern city of nearly fifty thousand with a dedication to maintaining its past.
