Cottleville Plans to Celebrate

the 225th Anniversary

of its Founding Throughout 2023

Here is some information on Cottleville's Founding. Check out the link below for "I Love Cottleville" gear too!

In 1798 Capt. Warren Cottle Sr. (43 yoa), a veteran of the Revolutionary War, was the owner of a grist mill and general store in South Woodstock (formerly known as Cottletown), Vermont. Capt. Cottle was told many stories of a warmer, drier climate in the Spanish Country of Louisiana. Capt. Cottle signed over responsibility to pay and collect debts on his behalf to his business partner and brother, Jabez Cottle. Capt. Cottle and his son, Ira (18 yoa) began the long and dangerous journey to St. Louis. Upon their arrival to St. Louis they soon learned of a small settlement on the banks of the Missouri River and from St. Charles, Capt. Cottle and Ira would ride out into the wilderness in search of a future home-site. Impressed with the beauty of the countryside with large trees, game and birds, Capt. Cottle selected a site on top of a limestone bluff overlooking the Dardenne River (Crooked Creek) for his future settlement 225 years ago.

In 1798, he received land grants from the Spanish government totaling 640 arpents (541 acres). They returned to Vermont to sell his home, businesses and gather personal belongings. In 1799 Capt. Cottle led a party of approximately 100 family members and friends on the 1,200 mile trip to what would one day become Cottleville, Missouri. In 1800 Capt. Cottle wrote a letter back to his brother-in-law in South Woodstock, VT, and soon another group arrived in 1802. These early settlers constructed several small log cabins as temporary homes, many started businesses and added on to their cabins while others received their own land grants and founded other towns including Old Monroe and Troy. Many members of the Cottle party became leaders in the new territory including; militia leaders, postmaster, assessor, sheriffs. Nathaniel Simonds served as Sheriff of the St. Charles District and would later be elected Missouri’s Second State Treasurer, 1821 – 1829.

Capt. Warren Cottle was born in 1755 at West Tisbury, Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts and died in March, 1811 at his home in (Cottleville), District of St. Charles, Territory of Louisiana (MO) at the approximate age of 56. Professor Eugene Cottle wrote “The fact that a significant number of people were willing to risk the many hazards of a journey into unknown, unsettled, and foreign country, under the supervision of this one man, attests to the qualities of leadership and responsibility which were apparent in the character of Captain Cottle.”

Lorenzo Cottle, son of Dr. Warren Cottle, Jr. and grandson of Capt. Warren Cottle, Sr. plated the town in 1839 and officially named it Cotteville after his father and grandfather. Cottleville was incorporated as a city in 1853.

-Sheriff Scott A. Lewis

Cottleville street slab replacement and repairs were completed in

Timberwood Farms subdivision this past summer.

In 2022, the City of Cottleville entered into an agreement with St. Charles County to take advantage of additional funding for local municipalities to perform more street slab replacement projects.

Dunmore, Columbus Pointe and various other locations have been selected for slab repairs and replacements in 2023. The 2022 and 2023 street slab replacement projects are funded by the City of Cottleville and the St. Charles County Government.

*The City does projects throughout the City and in Cottleville subdivisions each year.

Pledge to Recycle & Learn How to get More Blue Bag....

In 2020, Cottleville switched to a recycling enrollment program called the "Blue Bag Crew". By enrolling in the Blue Bag Crew, you pledge not to use Blue Bags for any other purpose other than recycling. Once you receive your blue crew sticker on your green solid waste container, you are enrolled. Please use the Blue Bags to recycle by placing all of your paper items in one Blue Bag and all your recyclable containers in another Blue Bag. Place your recycling Blue Bags filled with recyclables into your cart along with your trash bags. To request more Blue Bags, tie a Blue Bag (or any plastic grocery bag) onto the handle of your trash can. If you have the Blue Bag Crew sticker on your trash cart, the driver will drop off a new roll of Blue Bags when they see you’ve tied a bag on your cart.

**If you live within a multi-family complex, such as an apartment or condominium, you can sign up for the Blue Bag Crew program and receive a one-year supply of Blue Bags delivered to your home. When your Blue Bag is full, place the Blue Bag in one of the dumpsters at your complex along with your trash bags. When the driver picks up the trash and Blue Bags from the dumpster, the load will be taken to Recycle City for sorting and the Blue Bag items will be recycled.

Multi-family units need to enroll annually in the blue bag crew.

Please report street slab(s), curb(s) pothole(s), or sidewalk(s) in need of repair online at: Street Requests

Now You Know – Curbside Blue Bag Recycling

Blue bags are how Cottleville residents enrolled in the recycling program, recycle curbside. Paper items go into one blue bag, and containers go into a separate blue bag.

Those blue bags are then placed into your city solid waste container along with your regular trash bags. Recycled materials in the blue bags are sorted at St. Peters’ Recycle City facility on Ecology Drive, and then they are sold on the open market to offset trash costs.

Cottleville uses blue bags for an effective “dual-stream recycling” system that separates containers from paper items. Separating containers from paper makes Cottleville’s recycled items marketable because of a very low contamination rate.

The term “dual-stream” is used because both trash and recyclables are collected in the same cart and sorted later. This is different from single-stream recycling, which is when all recycled items are placed together in the same container. Single-stream recycling causes contamination due to the mingling of containers with paper.
