Tim and Callie Halls moved to Webster Groves 15 years ago, falling in love with the Victorian homes, strong school district and small-town feel. Tim works as a principal at Moneta; and Callie stays at home caring for their daughters, Chloe and Ellie, and their dog, Daisie. Tim and Callie told us what it’s like to live in Webster Groves.
What are your favorite Webster Groves hangouts?
Our favorite place to go is Robust Wine Bar. We go to La Cantina all the time, too. Every month, it seems like there’s some sort of outdoor community event going on, and we love those too—the Jazz Festival, Art & Air and the 5k runs.
What’s your family’s favorite Webster Groves tradition?
The houses on the stretch of Clark Avenue between Bompart Avenue and Glen Road go all out on their Halloween decorations every year, and there are hordes of trick-or-treaters. Most homeowners set up fire pits in the front yard and have parties, especially when the weather is decent.

Webster Groves has a hometown feel. The school district is very strong, and a lot of people are drawn to the variety of homes and architecture. Properties don’t tend to stay on the market very long. Webster also has great restaurants, venues and shops, like The Block, Milagro, Llewelyn’s, Robust, The Repertory Theatre and The Initial Design. The Fourth of July parade and festival are always huge celebrations for Webster.
