Welcome to Richmond Heights

Incorporated in 1913, the present city of Richmond Heights has its roots in a land grant given to Charles Gratiot by the Spanish government in 1789. Due to its proximity to desirable Forest Park, this land was developed by prominent Saint Louisans Albert Lindell and Frederick Niesen and the community grew quickly in conjunction with the adjacent Hi-Pointe neighborhood of St. Louis City. Today, the lure of Forest Park and its attractions lead many to settle in the community. The park features cultural centers such as the St. Louis Art Museum and the Missouri History Museum, as well as popular attractions such as the St. Louis Zoo. These features make Richmond Heights a premier residential destination.
