Fenton Service Area

Fenton Service Area

Long before Fenton existed, Native American Mound Builders occupied the area. They chose the area because of its close proximity to the Meramec River. The Meramec River allowed for them to travel from one place to another easily. Centuries later, Native American Mound Builders’s work is now associated with the mounds at Cahokia Mounds State Historic Park by Cahokia, Illinois.

While the Native American Mound Builders were earlier occupants of now Fenton, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources acknowledges an even earlier civilization. The Department provided a plaque in Fenton City Park to represent the ancient civilization that existed around 2,000 or 3,000 B.C, though we don’t know the name of it. 

In the 1770s, settlers arrived in the area where Fenton would be established. On March 23, 1818, William Lindsay Long officially found Fenton. He named the town after his grandmother, Elizabeth Fenton Bennet. The original lots for the town still exist and are now referred to as “Olde Towne Fenton.” The town was incorporated in St. Louis County in 1874. 

The town continued to grow as Fenton’s first post office opened in 1833. In the same year, a ferry boat was established to help people cross the Meramec River easier. That wasn’t enough, though. In 1854, a group of businessmen devised a plan to construct the first bridge across the Meramec River. A bridge would allow for easier access across the Meramec River and increase the town’s trade. Originally, a toll bridge was built before it was replaced by an iron bridge in 1855. A second iron bridge was then built in 1925. The completion of the second bridge helped Fenton to expand. However, in 2012, the second iron bridge was replaced with a concrete bridge. You can read more about Fenton’s history here, where we got all of our information.
