In a few days, the city of Clayton will kick off its centennial year, and it’s only fitting that we, as a community, join in on the celebration. For the past 100 years, Clayton had led St. Louis in many ways, including being designated a Green Power Community (the first in Missouri and one of only 38 in the U.S.), and being among the first in St. Louis County to adopt a smoking ban in public areas.
On April 7, 2013, 100 years will have passed since St. Louis County Court granted Clayton a city charter. In those 100 years, the city has grown and flourished as the county seat where homes are in demand and businesses find success. As Clayton nears its centennial year, LN spoke with Mayor Linda Goldstein about the upcoming celebrations, the city’s reputation and plan for the next century.
As Clayton celebrates its centennial anniversary, LN asked some longtime Clayton business leaders about their hopes for the city's next 100 years.
While Clayton was incorporated into a city in 1913, its presence was established long before it became official. Born out of the separation between St. Louis city and county and the need for a new county seat, the city took roots in 1877, when Ralph Clayton donated 100 acres of farmland and the Hanley family added four more. The fact that 36 years passed before Clayton became an official city was especially intriguing to Mary Delach Leonard when she wrote Clayton, Missouri: An Urban Story, just in time for the centennial anniversary. “You look at that, and wonder why it took so long for Clayton to become a city. But when you learn about the history, you discover that there was this group of people who just knew how to get things done, so they didn’t feel the need to establish an actual city with a mayor, etc.”
