A little about Brentwood
The city of Brentwood, referred to as the "City of Warmth", is a small, established but growing, suburban community, which enjoys its location within minutes of the resources of downtown St. Louis. While current day Brentwood is a dynamic city with a keen eye to the future, it places a high value in the preservation of its historical roots.
The history of Brentwood
Brentwood’s rich history stretches back more than 200 years. In 1804, a man by the name of Louis J. Bompart arrived in the area and purchased 1,600 acres of land. Later, the Marshall family acquired property just west of that, and the Gay family bought land to the north— together completing the boundaries of what is now the city of Brentwood. Thomas Madden found himself here in the early 1870s, purchasing 100 acres to establish his farm. The area continued to gradually grow, attracting new families for settling. Madden was recognized as the entrepreneur of the community, as he operated a rock quarry, tavern, barbershop, grocery store and blacksmith shop. His well-known presence in the town led to its original name, Maddenville.
