Partney Heating and Cooling has been serving Festus for over 20 years. Festus is often known as Crystal City’s “Twin City” due to the fact it is so close to the town. Today both Festus and Crystal City continue to flourish and are an important part of each other’s history.

According to Twin City Area History, Festus was created due to the fact that Crystal City Plate Glass Company, which owned Crystal City, wouldn’t allow any private buildings to be built. It was first called Limitsville and then later Tanglefoot. As the new town evolved, residents wanted the town to have a more dignified name. Legend says a local business owner by the name of Elizabeth Posch opened her Bible and declared that the first proper name she saw would be the town’s new name. The first proper name she came across was Festus in Acts 25:1. On February 8, 1887, a petition was presented to the Jefferson County Court and the town became known as Festus. The word “Festus” means joy which was fitting of the town.

Festus’ economy relied heavily on the glass factory in Crystal City as the local businesses could not thrive if their customers could not afford to go to them. In just a few short years Festus’s population grew to 1,000 and new businesses flourished. Today Festus continues to flourish and has become home to hundreds of new small businesses.

Festus has a flag with the colors of the American flag. It also has eight stars to represent how many council representatives the town has. Festus’ unique saying on the flag is “City of Progress” to represent how much growth the town has gone through. Partney Heating and Cooling values Festus’ history and enjoys serving the community in all their heating and cooling needs.
