The third oldest city to the west of the river, Saint Charles was founded in 1765. Back then, it was called The Little Hills, or Les Petites Ctes. The founder, Louis Blanchette was a fur trader of French Canadian origin. The city played a major role in early Missouri history, and was the first Missouri capital -- 1821 - 1826.

The famous explorers William Clark and Meriwether Lewis met here, to begin their famous expeditions as Lewis and Clark. With the granting of statehood to Missouri in 1821, decision was made to build the City of Jefferson to be the state capital. However, the area chosen for the site of the city was undeveloped, so a temporary capital became necessary until the actual proposed capital could be built. Saint Charles became the interim capital, and housed the temporary capitol for the legislature to meet. Gottfried Duden, a German visitor to the area wrote and published highly favorable and extensive accounts of the good life in the County, which led to large scale immigration of Germans to Saint Charles in 1833.
