Happy 185th Anniversary St. Charles!
185 looks good on you, St. Charles! In this before and after photo, you can see how much our community has changed. The top photo was taken in the late 1920s when the City was a budding industrial-based community on the Fox River with a population of just over 5,000. Since then, St. Charles has developed into a beautiful center for shopping, dining, and recreation with over 32,000 residents! We’re proud to be partaking in the 185th anniversary celebration of our amazing City!
