Many of the homes in Richmond Heights are of the “Arts and Crafts period” type, featuring unique architectural features and interior flourishes such as hardwood floors, stained glass windows, and high ceilings.
Richmond Heights originally got its name from Robert E. Lee, who thought the topography of the area resembled that of Richmond, Virginia.
Accessibility is not an issue in Richmond Heights. Here interstate 170 connects with 64/40, meaning easy access to downtown, the airport, and points west. Hanley Road, Big Bend, and Brentwood Boulevard also run through the town, meaning an easy drive to most of the area.
Richmond Heights prides itself on a diverse population, attractive homes in desirable neighborhoods, a modern community center, and ample shopping venues.
If shopping is your thing, Richmond Heights is the place to be. It is home to the St. Louis Galleria, a modern mall that has been a fixture in the St. Louis area for decades, and the Boulevard, a recently built mall with trendy shops and restaurants. There are also a number of “Big Box” stores and smaller independent shops. The Heights, a community center, library, and athletic complex, offers a number of programs and entertainment possibilities for families.
Quality public and private schools serve the residents of Richmond Heights. The town overlaps four school districts, all of which are highly rated and well regarded: Brentwood, Clayton, Ladue, and Maplewood-Richmond Heights.
