As one of the second ring suburbs of St. Louis, Florissant is large, thriving, and supports a diverse population and culture. With 52,000 residents, multiple schools, theological colleges, and proximity to the University of Missouri-St. Louis, the city is a good one for families and students alike. Florissant is one of the oldest settlements in Missouri, although the exact settlement date is unknown, and had an active population of French and Spanish settlers by 1786. Today, the city is inhabited by primarily French and German cultures, but traces of Spanish architecture and influence can still be seen around the area. Florissant is known as one of the safest and best places to live in the Seattle area, even earning the title of “#1 Best Small City to Retire to In America”, “2nd Safest City in Missouri”, and in 2012 was ranked #76 on Money Magazine’s list of “The Top 100 of Money Magazine’s Best Places to Live”.
History of Florissant: Florissant was founded in 1776 and covers about 12.8 miles with a population upwards of 52,000, making it one of the largest suburbs in St. Louis. While it was founded in 1776, the settlement is believed to be one of the oldest in Missouri, and was historically known as ‘Blooming’, ‘St. Ferdinand’, and ‘Florissant.’ Florissant is ranked number 76 in Money Magazines best places to live, and the city features multiple schools and a large library. With notable residents including NFL players and other world class athletes, the city has a prestigious name, but little to attract tourists or visitors, other than its quiet community, small shops and businesses, and beautiful architecture and streets.
