The history of St. James
St. James was the birthplace and part-time home of Lucy Wortham James, a wealthy philanthropist known for her purchase and preservation of Maramec Spring Park. She was a descendant of Thomas James, who founded the Meramec Iron Works, and as such was a member of one of the most eminent local families. The James Foundation, a charitable organization she founded, is responsible for the St. James city park and library as well as Meramec Spring Park. She is a local hero, and St. James' public elementary school is named for her. She and her family, along with the Meramec Iron Works, are emphasized in the school's lessons on local history, and the city library showcases items once belonging to her.
