A history page for Webster Groves.

Until 1802, Webster Groves was known as "Dry Ridge." At that time, The last Spanish Lieutenant Governor, Charles de Hautte Delassus, granted to George Sarpy 6,002 acres of land. Part of the land grant covered most of what is Webster Groves today.

There were actually five separate areas which merged together to eventually become Webster Groves. Webster Village began at Webster College when the Pacific Railroad started to make stops there. Other stops on the line were Tuxedo and Webster Park. Further on, the Pacific Railroad made other stops at Old Orchard Station and the Frisco Station. Each individual area began to develop, but unification did not really take place until 1896 when Webster Groves became an incorporated town. When a visitor from Chicago, E. Atwater, came to town to visit his girlfriend, Genevieve Orton, he was robbed and murdered. This crime caused the citizens of the area to rise up in anger. They felt they needed some type of organization - thus, the merger of Old Orchard, Webster Park, Tuxedo Park and Selma formed the city of Webster Groves.
The incorporation date of Webster Groves: 1896
