Learn more about Weldon Spring

Weldon Spring, Missouri is a small city in St. Charles County. The city is a suburb of St. Louis and was once home to the largest explosives factory in the U.S. The city has small town charms, but is near by big city conveniences. It is a family-friendly middle class community with good schools, low crime rates and plenty of open spaces. It is a stable community with high rates of homeownership and owner occupancy. Traditional single family structures are the most common form of housing, followed by apartments, townhomes, duplexes and more. It is semi-diverse in terms of ethnicity and race, though the majority of residents are of European descent. English is the primary language, a number of residents also speak Spanish.

The community was first platted in 1864 and was named after a spring that bore the same name. The original post office was opened in 1875. The community remained small and primarily agricultural for many years. But, in 1941, the Atlas Powder Company opened munitions plant just outside town and began manufacturing TNT and DNT. This business was active from 1941-1945. Later a portion of the property became home to plant that processed uranium and thorium for nuclear weapons and this business operated from 1957-1966. These operations left behind much chemical and nuclear contaminants which had to be cleaned up. This has left the community with perhaps the oddest roadside attraction ever, The Weldon Spring Site Remedial Action Project Disposal Cell. The disposal cell looked to be an enormous trapezoidal mountain of concrete and rubble that feels like a barren alien landscape. The site spans 54 acres and is now considered a tourist attraction. Visitors can even climb to the top of the entombed disposal cell, if they dare.

The city spans 7.64 square smiles of predominantly land area. It is a fairly wealthy community and has a mixed workforce.
