In 1963, Trails Lake Development Company began construction on the $150 million permanent residence development called "Lake St. Louis." The community is located in St. Charles County, approximately 16 miles west of the Missouri River, fronting both Interstate Highway 70 and U.S. Highways 40 and 61. The development was advertised as nearly twice the size of St. Louis' Forest Park with a sizable lake for recreation activities. The formal opening of the development began April 1, 1964. The collection contains sales and financial records, as well as maps, newspaper clippings, and promotional materials.
