After the British took over the French colonies on the far side of the Mississippi, some French colonists chose to move farther west. Many of them settled in the region around what would become St. Louis. The city of St. Louis was founded in the late 18th century, but did not become part of the US until the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. The city voted to separate themselves from the County of St. Louis around them in 1877. After WW1, many towns were formed and public schools opened throughout what would become recognized as the St. Louis Metropolitan Area. WW2 saw the region become more industrialized, but by the 1960s people began moving from the city to the smaller towns and suburbs. By the 1970 census, however, many people had moved out of the city of St. Louis and into its suburbs. The long and the short of that is that it is reasonably easy to buy a mobile home in St. Louis, Missouri these days.
