A Community of Rich History
Through the unrelenting efforts of many organizations and dedicated residents, Lemay is well on its way to economic vitality. The community has seen environmental cleanup, streetscape improvements and the preservation of its rich history. Also, it’s seen hundreds of new jobs, welcomed millions in investment and supported the growth and success of the area’s small businesses.
Although one of St. Louis’ older communities whose initial development happened some time ago, Lemay keeps presenting themselves with new opportunities. A local economy once dependent on manufacturing, today, is transitioning to services and recreational activities that fit the needs of a 21st century marketplace.
A new generation is settling in Lemay and change is afoot. As it evolves, there is no loss of attention to its celebrated heritage. Instead of demolition, residents wanted renovation, which has lead to the preservation of history, culture and an unofficial town.
