At just under 10,000 residents, the hometown vibe is alive and well in friendly St. Louis, Michigan. The city takes up nearly 4 square miles in Gratiot County. Highway 46 cuts St. Louis right down the middle, making Main Street and Monroe Road the crossroads of town.
The economy in St. Louis has been slight, with the exception of a new correctional facility in the works that has brought some jobs. For locals who’ve grown up here, family and community are the star attractions. You’ll find children in the streets playing stickball with grass-stained jeans.
