St. Louis was founded in 1764 by Pierre Laclède and Auguste Chouteau and named after Louis IX of France.

In the late 19th century, St. Louis became the fourth-largest city in the United States. It seceded (urban secession) from St. Louis County (St. Louis County, Missouri) in 1877, becoming an independent city and limiting its political boundaries. In 1904, it hosted the Louisiana Purchase Exposition and the Summer Olympics (1904 Summer Olympics). The city's population peaked in 1950; with restructuring of heavy industry and loss of jobs, plus postwar suburbanization, it began a long decline that continued into the 21st century. Immigration has increased, and the city is the center of the largest Bosnian (History of the Bosnians in St. Louis) population in the world outside their homeland.

The city is home to several major corporations including Express Scripts, Peabody Energy, Ameren, Monsanto, Ralcorp, and Sigma-Aldrich. St. Louis is also home to three professional sports teams: the St. Louis Cardinals of Major League Baseball, the St. Louis Blues of the National Hockey League, and the St. Louis Rams of the National Football League.
