Huntleigh is a city in St. Louis County, Missouri, United States. The population was 334 at the 2010 census.[6]

History[edit]

The community, most of which encompasses what was the original 650-acre (260 ha) 1700s farm of Stephen Maddox, is residential, with no commercial or industrial uses. Police services are provided by the city of Frontenac. Huntleigh incorporated in 1929 and was 450 acres (180 ha). It annexed land in 1937 and 1947 (when it acquired Huntleigh Woods) to reach its current size of 750 acres (300 ha). In 1927, August Anheuser Busch, Sr. co-founded (with early town resident Edward E. Bakewell, Sr.) the Bridlespur Hunt, a fox hunting club that was based in the community. The hunts now take place in St. Charles County, although some residents still have their stables in the community.[7][8] Its residents are among the wealthiest people in St. Louis, particularly members of the Busch family, including August Busch IV.[9]
