Contractor Selected for Fifth Street Improvements 
During a bid process, a contractor has been selected for the construction improvements to Fifth Street in historic old town Cottleville. Design and right of way is now complete. These improvements include an improved storm water system, curbs, sidewalks, parking, upgraded street signage and street lighting that would resemble our recent improvements on Main Street or along Highway N. Funding opportunities are currently underway and upon completion construction could begin this summer. For many years, the Cottleville Community Improvement District has discussed much needed improvements for Fifth Street in Cottleville's historic district. The intersection at Highway N and Fifth Street is congested and too often, accidents occur at this location.

Tributary B Creek 
to be Renamed, 
Archer Alexander Creek



WHEREAS, the story of Archer Alexander is very important in the history of St. Charles County, and has come to the attention of the St. Charles County Executive and the St. Charles County Council; and
WHEREAS, Archer Alexander was a slave from Virginia who was brought to St. Charles County in 1830, and eventually married another slave named Louisa; and
WHEREAS, in 1863, during the Civil War, Alexander learned that men had sabotaged a railroad bridge by sawing its timbers, and he informed a Union man who conveyed the message to Union troops who fixed the bridge before any train crossed; and
WHEREAS, Alexander later also informed Union officials that arms were hidden in an ice-house on the Campbell farm near the Pitman Farm; and
WHEREAS, rebel sympathizers came to suspect Alexander and he feared so for his safety that he ran away to St. Louis, where he was given refuge by William Eliot, a prominent unionist and later founder of Washington University; and
WHEREAS, slave catchers apprehended Alexander, but federal officials, at the request of Eliot, recovered him and returned him to freedom; and
WHEREAS, Provost Marshal Franklin Dick gave Archer Alexander an order of protection, allowing him to remain in the service of William Eliot; and
WHEREAS, in December 1864, the provost marshal began recruiting African American troops in St. Charles County, and Tom Alexander, the son of Archer Alexander, was among the first; and
WHEREAS, when Tom Alexander was killed in action, Archer expressed pride that his son had served, stating "I couldn't do it myself, but I thank the Lord my boy did it"; and
WHEREAS, in 1869 pictures of Archer Alexander were used by sculptor Thomas Ball as part of work on a monument to Abraham Lincoln to be erected in Washington, D.C., and it was said that  "his likeness, both face and figure, is as correct as that of Mr. Lincoln himself"; and
WHEREAS, that statute, using Archer Alexander's likeness, became the Emancipation Memorial statue and has stood in Washington D.C.'s Lincoln Park since 1876; and
WHEREAS, a creek currently designated as "Tributary B," which flows into the Dardenne Creek, is located in St. Charles County where the Campbell farm used to be located; and
WHEREAS, the rich history of the story of Archer Alexander in St. Charles County warrants an official naming of "Tributary B" as "Archer Alexander Creek".

This resolution passed and approved this 21st day of February 2018.
Mayor Jim Hennessey

C ottleville to be Future Home of the Brown Family Dentistry!
Have you noticed construction on the lot at Highway N and Lime Street?  This will be the future home of the Brown Family Dentistry!
The new building will feature his dentist office and provide other retail and office spaces. During early demolition work, a log structure was found after removing several layers. There was no previous record in a past architectural survey of a log home being within the structure at Highway N and Lime Street. However, the logs that were discovered during early demolition work have been carefully removed by the property owner's contractor as he plans to feature them in his new building. Historically, the City has required any log structures to be saved, restored or displayed in some fashion before demo permits are issued. For example, the logs from the home that once stood at 5291 Fifth Street are currently in the City's possession and some of those logs are now featured in the City Hall lobby and featured in the corn crib style log structure that was reconstructed at Blooming Daisy Marketplace located at 5541 Chestnut. The City takes pride in its historical value and has also required the property owner of the log home located at 5366 Main Street to number/tag and remove the logs carefully and for those logs to be in the City's possession for possible reconstruction within the City limits at a later date. In the past, the City has chosen to feature the Seargent log cabin that once stood at Eagle Hill Lane off Highway N as the Dardenne Greenway Trailhead in Legacy Park. This log cabin is open every day in Legacy Park for you to visit for preservation and educational purposes.
