Lake St. Louis, Missouri
The City of Lake St. Louis is a planned community situated around two lakes between Interstate 70 and Interstate 64 in western St. Charles County, Missouri, United States. The population was 16,707 as of the 2020 US Census.
An increasingly common idea in the St. Louis area during the 1960s, private resort communities was the focus of Ellis Ellerman and Ira Nathan’s planning efforts in January 1961. The idea was to build a weekend getaway resort close to St. Louis with a lake big enough for recreation. When Ellerman and Nathan recruited engineers to start the lake’s and community’s first planning, Nathan gave the project the name “Lake St. Louis” in 1961.
Ten lots in the project, which was to include a 625 lake, had already been sold by August 31 of that year when Ellerman and Nathan founded Trails Lake Development Corp. (PD article 8-25-63). Ellerman and Nathan struggled to complete the project because they lacked sufficient funding and business expertise.
Several additional investors, including R. T. Crow, quickly joined Ellerman and Nathan in their efforts to keep the enterprise afloat. Ellerman and Nathan’s financial problems persisted, and in June 1966, their company Trails Lake Development Inc. was foreclosed upon by The Healey Discount Corp., which was controlled by Crow and the other three investors.
