Arnold Real Estate Information

Arnold is a medium sized community found in the far eastern central portion of the state of Missouri. Arnold has a population of approximately twenty thousand four hundred residents, making it the largest city in the region. Arnold is a portion of Jefferson County, a suburban and rural portion of the Saint Louis Metropolitan Area that is much less heavily populated than most of the remainder of greater Saint Louis. Arnold properties are spread over a total area of just more than eleven and a half square miles, which breaks down to about eleven and a fifth square miles of land and a third of a square mile of standing surface water. Arnold has a population density of almost two thousand persons per square mile, and has grown a bit in the last decade.

The first non-Native American settler of what is now considered Arnold, Missouri was Jean Baptiste Gamache, who was notable for the operation of a local ferry in exchange for a considerable amount of land. Eventually, the name of the road on which the ferry was located was changed to “Telegraph”, an indication of the increasing importance of the telegraph to the nation. Arnold became increasingly prominent during the first half of the nineteenth century, as immigrants began to notice the good quality of the soil in the region. Arnold was never really centralized until about the year nineteen seventy two, when it was officially incorporated as a city of the Show Me State.

The educational needs of the residents of Arnold real estate are met primarily by a trio of public schools, which are the Fox Senior High School, Sherwood Elementary School, and Richard Simpson Elementary School. Recreational facilities maintained by the city of Arnold include the Arnold City Park, Ferd B Lang Park, Paw Park, Flamm City Park, and the Strawberry Creek Nature Area. Arnold is also home to the Arnold Historical Society, the Pomme Creek Golf Course, and the Arnold Recreation Center. Arnold was also recognized by Money Magazine as one of the fifteen most affordable communities in which to live in the entire United States.
