St. Peters, Missouri is in St. Charles County. Missouri Highway 370 intersects with Interstate Highway 70 at St. Peters. The city is roughly halfway between O’Fallon to the west and St. Charles to the east. Harvester is south of St. Peters and Cottleville is southwest. Prior to its settlement by Europeans, the area was the home of the people known as the Mississippian Mound Builders, as the remains of a village was uncovered during the construction of I-70 in 1954. The first documented European settlement was in 1791, when a Spanish land grant was recorded. St. Peters was named for a Jesuit mission that was established there. Throughout most of its history, as recently as the 1970s, St. Peters was a small farming community, but its population had increased sharply by 1980, by which time it had evolved into a suburban community, and since then it has doubled in population. Incorporated as a village in 1910, St. Peters was incorporated as a town in 1910, and as a city in 1959. St. Peters is home to Barnes-Jewish St. Peters Hospital, which serves a large portion of St. Charles County, Lincoln County, and Pike County.
