St. Louis Home Builder Offers Quality Living Near Treasured Historical Monuments

St. Charles, Missouri is an area rich with heritage that reminds one of a compelling era in American history. During the early 1800s, several renowned figures of the time were central to important events that took place here. The region is home to landmarks commemorating the lives of the frontiersman Daniel Boone and the explorers Lewis and Clark. 

If you would like to move to a community that celebrates this pioneering spirit, consider the fact that Brookfield Crossing, Aspen Meadows, Bristol Ridge and Kensington Estates are all located in the immediate area. 

These neighborhoods built by Rolwes Company, a respected St. Louis home builder, are known for remarkable workmanship and exceptional value. New residents can enjoy convenient access to attractions that highlight the realities, methods, and mindsets of trailblazers who forged their way through the region over 200 years ago. 

Learn About a Legacy

The subject of numerous legends and folklore tales, Daniel Boone accomplished a number of incredible feats during his lifetime. Although some stories may be embellished, historical facts show that he was a brave soldier, a successful military leader, a cunning hunter, and a skilled surveyor. 

The Historic Daniel Boone Home welcomes visitors who are eager to learn what a day in the life of an early 1800s pioneer looked like. Tours allow gentle access to limestone brick buildings across the Boone Homestead that have been preserved in their original form. 

Residents of nearby Brookfield Crossing and Aspen Meadows can reach the site in a matter if 15 minutes or less – from modern-day civilization to the surroundings of Missouri frontier life.        

Explore Adventurous Lives

In 1804, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark were commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson to explore the lands west of the Mississippi River. Part of their mission was to find an “all water” route to the Pacific Ocean, a “rendezvous with destiny” that was launched from the banks of the Missouri River in St. Charles. 

Visitors to the Lewis and Clark Boat House and Museum can enjoy historical reenactments and explore highlights of the famous journey while learning about Native American culture and Missouri River habitats. 

One of the major attractions of the museum is a one-of-a-kind recreation of the keelboat used in their expedition. Within five minutes, residents of nearby Bristol Ridge can witness nautical reenactments based on the journals of Captain William Clark. 

Witness a Riverside Spectacle

Between the east edge of St. Charles and the west bank of the Missouri River sits Frontier Park – a 14-foot tall monument to Lewis and Clark alongside their Newfoundland dog, Seaman. Residents in nearby Kensington Estates– a growing community by St. Louis home builderRolwes Company – enjoy convenient access to the breathtaking sight of the three figures gazing off to the western horizon.     


The community of St. Charles, MO cherishes the roles of Daniel Boone and the Lewis and Clark Expedition within the story of colonial America. Contact us to learn more about living in this area rich with history and heritage.
