Many a family seeking a new life to the west travelled along the trail. Creve Coeur is French for 'broken heart.'

A story is told of an Indian princess who fell in love with a fur trapper. However, the trapper did not feel the same way. The princess threw herself off a ledge and into a lake, that then formed itself into a broken heart. Today, it is Creve Coeur Lake. The city is today home to about 17,000.
