The City of St. Ann began to function as a municipality on April 13, 1948. This is when the St. Louis County Court granted a petition for incorporation to residents of the area. The city actually began to develop six years before it was granted the petition. Charles F Vatterott, the developer and builder of most of the residential and commercial properties in St. Ann, started the community as a housing project for families of workers employed in nearby defense plants. It was one of the few defense housing projects in the country to develop into a permanent town.
