Ferguson was founded in 1894 by William Ferguson in an attempt to create a station on the Wabash Railroad, which ran until 1964 but is now defunct. The city grew and eventually featured part of St. Louis’ famous streetcar system, even having a road with only one track, where a loop that is still visible to tourists, was later constructed around. Ferguson was also home to the longest streetcar line in the United States, which ran from the West End Narrow Gauge Railway to the city limits, making the city easily accessible to everyone. Today, the city has a population of more than 13,000 enrolled students, and more than 21,000 local residents. Ferguson is most well known in recent years as the hometown of Michael Brown, who was fatally shot in 2014. However, the city’s history dates back to the mid-1800s and by 1880 nearly 200 people called the town their own. The city dates back to 1855, when land was granted by William B. Ferguson to the Wabash Railroad, resulting in a new depot. Today, Ferguson is a thriving city and home to over 21,000 people. The area supports 19 Christian churches, 11 public and private schools, and an independent community library within the district.
