Pevely is a town in Jefferson County located next to the Mississippi River. Pevely was first settled in 1799 and was established 61 years later in 1860. It was incorporated in 1910. Pevely offered resources such as a plentiful amount of timber and wild game that drew settlers to the area. The first settler recorded in Pevely was Joseph Bartholomew Herrington who married Sarah Dremon and had fourteen children. He had been granted 403 acres of land in what later would become Pevely. The land was known as Survey 420 when it came under Joseph Bartholomew Herrington’s possession. Other individuals that later settled there were Jack Broughton, John Herrington, and Louis Juede. Jack Broughton built the first house and hotel. He was the first postmaster too. John Herrington built the first saloon in Pevely and Louis Juede was the first blacksmith.
Pevely was first called Pevely Springs before being changed. On March 4th, 1953, the people of Pevely voted to change Pevely from a village to a city. Pevely was right by the Iron Mountain and Southern Railway. The railroad provided transportation and new settlers to Pevely. The railroad allowed settlers to travel from Pevely to St. Louis and back as it was only 27 miles away.
Pevely used to be known for its German community and dairy farms. At one point it was said to be one of the greatest shipping points for butter and milk in the United States. The dairy was largely shipped to St. Louis and towns surrounding it.
