contentsNorth County MO Chamberads


Over 15,000 people live in Jennings, situated as Ferguson’s southeastern neighbor. With a history dating back to 1839, when James Jennings first purchased land here, the city officially incorporated in 1946.

Attempting to rejuvenate its commercial standing, several major developments are in progress. A complete makeover of Northland Shopping Center is taking place, as the area will soon feature new stores and offices.

Another Jennings mall is being replaced. The area will become a residential community, featuring new single-family houses, townhomes and a neighborhood commercial area. These “community villages” have become increasingly popular throughout the country and will enhance the overall appeal of Jennings.

More developments in the residential sector are occurring. What once had been a popular drive-in theater now will be the future site of Alexandria Place, a residential community with a walking trail, park and playground area, as well as some commercial buildings.

The Jennings Beautification Committee sponsors two award-winning community gardens and many other public beautification projects. They also hold concerts in the park, often co-sponsored by the Jennings Neighborhood Watch.
