Figuring out where to live in St. Louis can be complicated, especially for newcomers. It is hard for some to wrap their head around the fact that the city itself is small (with a population of about 300,000) but has 79 distinct neighborhoods, each with its own vibe and name. Just outside the city limits, more than 2 million people live in 100 different municipalities spanning several counties and 2 states—all of which are sometimes referred to as the Greater St. Louis region.

Just like clothing fashions, home trends come and go and are reflected in the types of homes that are popular. The difference is that houses stick around a lot longer than clothes. When it comes to St. Louis home styles, many houses built more than 100 years ago are still standing, as are houses from every era since.
