History

Maplewood was established around the turn of the 20th century. Maplewood was one of the early suburbs of St. Louis, Missouri. Located just outside the St. Louis city limits, Maplewood was located at the end of the City's streetcar line and was also located near major railroads.

It was built as a bedroom community. Advertising suggested that people should get away from the City and enjoy the fresh air. Maplewood's historic residential areas were mostly built from 1900-1910 and a number of well-preserved homes remain. Several of these homes have remained in the same family for generations.

Maplewood is currently being revitalized by an influx of restaurants, businesses, and shops around Manchester Ave., Sutton Ave., and Greenwood Historic District.
