 Profile of Chesterfield
by Sid Cameron, (Data by: U.S. Census Bureau, Census 2000)

Located about 25 miles west of downtown St. Louis is the suburban city of Chesterfield- the second largest city in St. Louis County and the largest city in the West County region.

Headquartered in Chesterfield are several large local and regional employers including Amdocs, Dierbergs (local grocery chain), ReproMAX and RGA Reinsurance Group of America.  Chesterfield is also home to Logan College of Chiropractic, one of the top Chiropractic colleges in the nation.

Chesterfield features several vibrant retail shopping areas.  Chesterfield Mall features over 150 stores including anchors Dillards, Macy's and Sears.  The area known as "Chesterfield Valley" features several newer shopping centers that offer wide variety of shops and restaurants including major retailers Target, Sam's Club, Wal-Mart, Home Depot and Lowe's.

The triple A rated Rockwood School district and the Parkway School district service Chesterfield.  The city is also serviced by a local YMCA which houses a 370-seat community theatre.

The jewel of Chesterfield is undoubtedly Faust Park, a 200-acre county park that offers picnic and play areas, a recreated 19th century village called Historic Village and the Butterfly House that offers visitors the ability to move through a three-story conservatory filled with more than 1,000 tropical butterflies fluttering through the lush, flowering vegetation.

Connecting Chesterfield to the rest of the metro area is Interstate 64 (Highway 40) that runs East to St. Louis and West/Northwest to St. Charles County as well as Route 340 (Olive Blvd/Clarkson Road) and State Highway 141 (under construction).

Chesterfield is home to the 3rd busiest airport in Missouri, The Spirit of St. Louis Airport, and also offers public transportation via Metro bus service.
