Small Town America is alive and well in the middle of Michigan, in the historic City of St. Louis!
St. Louis, the “Middle of the Mitten,” is a picturesque small town that serves its residents, neighbors and travelers with convenient shopping, eating options and a safe, clean walkable environment.
The “Geographic Center of the Lower Peninsula,” St. Louis is located right on M-46 only two miles east of US-127. The town has a fascinating history including once being home to the Magnetic Mineral Springs and bath house, two opera houses and a historic hotel. Much of St. Louis historic business district architecture has been preserved and many turn of the century buildings are still in use as businesses and shops. An array of Victorian homes can be seen along M-46 in the heart of town, including the magnificent “Elwell Castle” on the corner of M-46 and Delaware Streets. The City has made application to have a portion of North Mill Street be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Over the past several years the City has been hard at work on economic development, downtown and Brownfield projects to build an outstanding core to the City. Evidence of this is the improvement in the Central Business District of North Mill Street and M-46 where you can see a $350,000 MDOT Enhancement Project as well as a $750,000 parking lot and alleyway improvement project that was completed in 2003. Victorian lighting with underground electric, installed by the City’s own Electric Department, highlights the area along with landscaping, trees, new paving, flowers and more. Two Brownfield projects has brought a private investment of over $1 million to downtown and several other sites are being cleaned up for possible redevelopment. 2015 saw the construction of a new City Hall, housing City offices as well as the St. Louis Police Department. This is a rehabilitation and re-use of the former St. Louis IGA building on the north end of downtown. The St. Louis Area Fire Department also has a new facility in the southeast corner of the DDA area.
