Town & Country

If you were to stand at the intersection of Clayton and Mason Road and travel back in time to 1886 you may be surprised to find out that you would not be standing in Town and County. Back then Town and Country was known as Altheim, Missouri.

Altheim was a farming town located along Clayton Road between what is now I-270 to the east and Woods Mill to the west. Just to the south along Mason Road was the one room school house that served Altheim. To the north on Conway Road was the first post office in the area – housed in the Oge log cabin that has been reconstructed at Drace Park. The center of Altheim was near Clayton and Mason Roads where you could find the Fette Tavern, and just to the east was the Altheim Inn that also served as the gathering place for farmers, and where community dances and town meetings were held. Imagine those who resided in the log cabins that are now represented at Drace Park traveling to the Altheim Inn for food, conversation, and commerce.
Rich history - Exciting Future

Truly, this geographical center of our City has a rich history and has been the community gathering place for over a 125 years, and now forms the centerpiece for our collaborative planning purposes as we chart a path forward and establish something really special for our City, its residents, families, friends and visitors to celebrate long into the future.
