Glendale is one of the friendliest, most neighborly little communities around dating back to when the country homes for city dwellers first were built here after the Civil War. Many of those early country homes still exist in Glendale today.
Glendale is an exclusively residential city. Most of the city is restricted to one-family units and construction and growth has been well-planned resulting in the general harmony of home styles and landscaping. The less than 5,500 residents reside on about an acre and a half of property. Glendale’s two main streets are Sappington Road, one of the oldest roads in the county, and Lockwood Boulevard.
Glendale is a family community with gracious homes and amenities that are perfect for raising a small family. Glendale’s school system provides only for the elementary grades. Students in higher grades attend the outstanding school districts of either Webster Groves or Kirkwood.
Glendale homes can be a little higher per square footage but what you may not get in space is more than made up in charm. In 2007 the mean price for all housing units was $359,569.
This little residential suburb is home to one of the finest community clubs in the bi-state area, Algonquin Country Club. Algonquin’s challenging golf course and exquisite landscaping attract members from all parts of the country.
A spirit of community service and volunteerism unite bring residents in all aspects of life in Glendale. Glendale is a charmer. You will love it.
