With thriving companies in technology, medicine, and science, Creve Coeur has come to be known as the Silicon Valley of St. Louis. But Creve Coeur is not just a high-tech haven: great schools, well-funded city services, and consistent home values make Creve Coeur a great place to put down roots.

The main road through Creve Coeur, Olive Boulevard, sees a lot of traffic as St. Louis area residents make their way to the various shops and offices. But head off the main road and you’ll find nice, quiet neighborhoods and excellent parks—an ideal place to raise a family. Creve Coeur homes come in a variety of styles, from elaborate mansions to comfy ranch homes of a more traditional approach. Condos and villas attract young professionals to the area.  


Creve Coeur translates to “broken heart” in French. The neighborhood gets its name from the legend of an Indian princess whose heart was broken by a French trapper. She leapt from a ledge overlooking Creve Coeur Lake, which then reconfigured itself in the shape of a broken heart.

Creve Coeur started out a farming community by the side of a centuries-old Indian trail linking the Mississippi River to the Missouri River. Wagons heading west took settlers and businessmen to new lands. Some, of course, settled in the area, and Creve Coeur today has developed into a thriving town and high-tech destination.


A good middle ground, Creve Coeur makes the morning commute a little easier with centralized access to Interstate 270 and Highway 40.


Community support is prominent throughout the neighborhood, featuring public art and purchasing produce at their very own Farmer’s Market. With the purchase of Creve Coeur ID cards, residents receive discounts at the local golf course, ice arena, and aquaport.


You can find just about anything along Olive Boulevard, Creve Coeur’s main road: shops, restaurants, and a movie theater. A short drive from West County Mall and downtown, the neighborhood is a great host to residents. 


Creve Coeur has a high reputation of schools in the neighborhood. There are three top-rated public districts, Ladue, Parkway, and Pattonville, zoned in the area, as well as nearby private schools.
