This link will give you a really great, brief history of the resorts that grew up along the Meramec River around 1900.
These include CASTLEWOOD, VALLEY PARK, & KIRKWOOD.
All were served by the railroad before automobiles made it possible for the wealthy to be more mobile. We've talked about this on our hikes, thought you might like more details.
I'm just glad that Castlewood isn't so crowded these days!
