St. Louis grew slowly until after the War of 1812. The War helped to ease some of the British interference to trade originating from/through the city, and population began to expand rapidly as a result. Located near the conjunction of several major waterways (Missouri River, Illinois River, Mississippi River, and Ohio River), St. Louis fast became the most significant inland port in the country. Chief among exports in the early years was fur, but over time, this practice grew to include iron, coal, lead, and eventually manufactured products, such as shoes, beer, etc. .

“St. Louis never disappointed me. She was there at every turn. Turn from the river with your back to the east, and you can see the dust of the prairies granulating the light. I’m tempted to say ululating, for there is a persistent tremor in the light at that particular point in our geography where St. Louis rests. There is no other place like it.” -Joel Meyerowitz, foreword to his photobook, St. Louis and The Arch

In mid-February of 1764, several boats landed upon the muddy bank of what would become the St. Louis Levee. They carried a crew of thirty men; most notable among them was Auguste Chouteau Jr. Fourteen years old at the time, Chouteau was the leader of the small group, and had been tasked by his employer (later, his father-in-law), Pierre Laclède, to establish a settlement upon the location. Laclède was a French-born merchant with some military experience and formal education. He and a partner in New Orleans formed Maxent, Laclède, and Company to control trade with the Native American tribes in the upper Louisiana Territory, so a settlement within the region appeared a strategic move. Little did either conceive upon how large their northern outpost would grow.
