Kirkwood was established in 1853 and was the first planned residential commuter suburb west of the Mississippi. It was one of four early commuter railroad suburbs in the St. Louis region. The story of trains is intertwined with the history of Kirkwood. Kirkwood owes its very existence to the railroad. The City was named for James Pugh Kirkwood, the engineer in charge of locating, surveying, and building the railroad. From the beginning, it’s been a love affair between citizens and trains, as evidenced by the beautiful and historic Kirkwood Train Station, located in the heart of the City.
