Glendale, in St. Louis County, Missouri, began as a small station on the Missouri Pacific Railroad, between Webster Groves and Kirkwood, although its original location is no longer within the boundaries of Glendale, as it was separately incorporated as Oakland in 1920, and two efforts to reinstate it have failed. Around the time of the Civil War, the community was sparsely populated, consisting of some elegant country homes and estates, and it was first incorporated, as a village, in 1912, becoming a fourth-class city in 1916. Through its early history, the community’s boundaries were flexible, with sections being added and dropped, with some areas being dropped and then reinstated to Glendale at a later date. Its limits were more firmly settled by 1932, with Manchester Road serving as its northern boundary, a line just south of Lockwood Boulevard on the south, and the city limits of neighboring Webster Groves and Kirkwood on the east and west. Sappington Road runs north and south, dividing the city, and is one of the oldest roads in the county. Today, Glendale is largely a residential community.
