Okawville is a rural community located only minutes away from St. Louis. Interstate 64 provides a quick link to St. Louis and its many attractions.
The village's German heritage is reflected in its well-kept homes with their neatly-trimmed lawns. Its residents have a strong sense of civic pride.
Originally founded as Bridgeport in 1838, the village was renamed Okawville in the mid-1870s when Germans immigrated to the area and began farming the surrounding countryside and opening shops in the village.
Okawville has been well-known for its natural mineral springs, and has drawn guests from far and wide to experience the healing baths. However, Okawville has much more to offer than just a healing bath. We have a variety of businesses including golf, museums, and quaint shops for all your needs.
