Then & Now......
Historic Home & Property Offered For Sale in Cottleville

The former home of lifelong resident Frank J. Martin who was born, raised, and occupied this home from 1945-2020 is now offered for sale.   Frank was born on November 15, 1945 to the late Clem Martin and Barbara (nee Drieswerd) Martin. Frank was employed by St. Joseph Church and School where he was a member. He was well known and loved by area residents.

   *As shown here in the 1875 W.R. Brink & Company Atlas Map, in the 1800's the property located along the Boone's Lick Road (Hwy. N/St. Charles Street) served as a farm and home to Charles F. Miller. Miller who died in 1888 at the age of 72  is said to be buried in a cemetery near Weldon Spring. George F. Miller who grew up on the farm left $1,000 in his 1921 will to be used for amenities to improve the town. His detailed 15 page will called for the use of the interest income earned on his $1,000 to beautify the town by planting shade trees consisting of heart maples, construction and maintenance of a drinking fountain and improvements to streets and sidewalks. You can find a framed copy of the 1875 atlas in the lobby of Cottleville City hall.    

This home and property now for sale is adjacent to Lorenzo's Plaza. The brick plaza with festoon lighting was named after Lorenzo Cottle (grandson of founder Capt. Warren Cottle) who platted the town in 1839. In 1839, Lorenzo Cottle also deeded the plaza area to serve as "public property".  At one time, Cottleville numbered eleven places of business and three hotels. In 1846, the town became a rival of St. Charles and petitions were circulated to have the County Seat of Justice transferred from St. Charles to Cottleville. The people of St. Charles heard about this daring attempt and soon many counter-petitions circulated. This ended the ambitions of Cottleville's citizens to bring the County Seat to Cottleville but the site (Lorenzo's Plaza) remains as a public gathering place today.

Keep Storm Drains Clear!
Cottleville residents and landscapers are reminded to keep grass clippings out of the street and the City's storm drains.  Blowing grass and other yard debris into the street or storm drainage system is a violation of the City's littering and stormwater ordinances.
Grass clippings, leaves and other lawn debris can clog storm drains, resulting in street flooding.  Also storm drains flow directly to local waterways untreated.  Grass clippings add unnecessary nutrients, which help feed harmful algae blooms.  In addition to environmental harm, you may be creating a safety hazard.  When blowing into the street the clippings can create a slippery and dangerous surface for traveling motorists and bicyclists.  
Using a mulching mower puts the clippings back into the yard and keeps the nutrients where they belong.  Should you use a discharging mower, please be sure to point the blower toward your property and away from the street to prevent the clippings from leaving your yard.  Mowers may also choose to bag clippings, but they may not be disposed in a regular refuse container.  
When finished mowing be sure to use a blower or broom to clean up any grass clippings that may have inadvertently made their way into the street.
