Panoramic photo of Emerson Road in Creve Coeur, Missouri

FR. JOHN EMERSON, in the comments to the posting Photos of Saint Monica Church in Creve Coeur, Missouri, mentioned that some of his ancestors lived in that area in the 19th century, and that Emerson Road in Creve Coeur was named after them.

Here is a panorama view of the corner of Emerson and Old Ballas Roads, near Olive Boulevard. It is a few blocks from Saint Monica's Church.

Visible are office buildings, parking garages, and a luxury car dealership. The area still had much farmland up until the 1980s, now it is increasingly urbanized.
