Creve Coeur History

Creve Coeur was originally a stage-coach stop along Olive Boulevard. The city was named after the Creve Coeur Lake. The lake derived its name from a French term meaning "broken heart." The Olive Street Road, now known as Olive Boulevard, led to the gradual growth of the unincorporated community of Creve Coeur. The city has preserved its history in the form of several 200-year-old cabins off Highway 270, including Clester and Hackmann cabins. Creve Coeur was incorporated in December 1949.
