Maplewood Real Estate Information
A mid-sized inner-ring suburb of St. Louis, Maplewood, Missouri, is a city of 1.5 square miles of land in St. Louis County. More than 9,000 residents called the town home at the time of the 2000 census, and these residents had a median household income of around $30,000 and an average age of just over 33 years old. The city sits right outside the St. Louis city limits and was historically located at the end of St. Louis's streetcar lines. It was near major railroad lines as well, and several homes built in the heyday of the railroad era, in the early decades of the 20th century, still stand, and some are quite well-preserved. The city was settled by a man named Charles Gratiot, who left Switzerland from America and eventually married Victorie Chouteau, the daughter of Madame Marie Therese Chouteau, one of St. Louis's founding families.
