Welcome!

The Municipal League of Metro St. Louis is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, voluntary association of cities, villages and county governments dedicated to improving the quality of life for area residents.

Featured Member of the Month: Rock Hill

The City of Rock Hill enjoys the green space of seven city parks as well as the convenience of a contemporary shopping and dining district. The annual traditions of the city follow the seasons and the cultural traditions common across the country. These events include: the annual Easter Eggstravaganza, the Arbor Tree Day celebration, the Summer Camp in June, and the Fall Festival among other municipal occasions.

The Fairfax House, in the City of Rock Hill, was built in 1839 and enjoys its own history as the first post office of the city where mail was picked up and delivered three times a week; the house also served as a kind of depot for the State Stage Line connecting St. Louis to Kansas City.

In the mid 1800’s, the Presbyterian Church sent a delegation to name what was then a new location in the outskirts of St. Louis, Missouri. The geographic location chosen for the church sat atop a hill and the soil and land gave the area its christening. Over time, the name of the Rock Hill Church was soon applied to the Rock Hill area in its entirety.
