General Information


View the 2011 Community Information Sheet

View the 2013 Community Information SheetSt. Jacob Illinois is a quiet community with an abundance of open spaces and small-town atmosphere, as well as family oriented community values. Set in the rural landscape of Southwestern Illinois, our small Village lets you step back in time to a place that is perfect to raise children or just enjoy the peacefulness of quiet streets and great neighbors.

In St. Jacob you will find business that are locally owned and managed such as the State Bank of St. Jacob and Home Telephone and Entertainment. This local ownership will ensure that you will receive the kind of personal service and support that your coworkers in St. Louis and other communities will only look at with envy and disbelief.

Other local shopping districts, as well as doctors, hospital and other professional services can be found within five miles of St. Jacob by visiting either the cities of Highland to the east or Troy to the west.

The Triad school district also offers one of the finest public educations in the state of Illinois. The district consistently ranks as one of the best, and provides a local neighborhood school located in the heart of the Village, as well as a modern high school that is just 4 miles west of town.

While residents pride themselves with the small town values that are found in everyday life, they also enjoy the luxuries of a modern and thriving metropolitan region. Located 25 miles east of downtown St. Louis, residents are only twenty-minute drives from major sporting events, shopping centers and entertainment districts, as well as the many other amenities that a major metropolitan region would have to offer.

Located within ten minutes of four major interstates, St Jacob is an easy commute to almost anywhere in the metropolitan area and is quickly becoming the perfect place to call home.Click to visit the official St. Jacob Home Page

History


The first house built in St. Jacob (initially called St. Jacobs) was built by Jacob Shultz, where he sold whiskey by the gallon. In 1849, Jacob Schroth started a store; he bought 2 ½ acre off the corner of Jacob Shultz's farm; he built a small house(since enlarged), now the St. Jacob House. He entertained travelers and had a wagon-yard in in connection with his saloon and store. In June 1851 he got a post office established and because his name was Jacob and Jacob was the original owner of the land and the blacksmiths name was Jacob they concluded to name the place of the then crossroads St. Jacobs. Mr Schroth continued his business here until his death in 1860. His wife was then commissioned post-mistress and continued the business many years, in 1850 Jacob Willi started a blacksmith shop and worked at his trade several years. The third house was put up in Louis Sciele. It is in part now the Pfaezer Hof. Mr Schiele in 1866 laid out the town of St. Jacobs in the southeast quarter of the southeast quarter of section 9. The village increased principally around the Schroth corner and on the St Louis wagon road, until the construction of the railroad since which the growth has been almost entirely toward the depot. There were about 20 houses in the place before the railroad was built. The census of 1880 gave it a population of 461. Dr. Buck was the first physician. In 1866 Edward Dee and William C. M'Alilly built a saw mill in quarter of a mile north of the town. They afterward sawed out a frame and put up a small grist mill and then took into partnership with them Charles Valier who was a practical miller. The mill commenced grinding in 1869; since that time it has been owned by several different parties. The saw mill has long since been abandoned. The mill has been greatly improved from time to time and it now stands a substantial frame, 4 stories high, with basement, having 4 run of burrs and a capacity of 125 barrels per day. It is owned and operated by Joseph Pecler and Jacob Willi. The saw mill near the depot was put up in 1880 now owned by John Bartle. The Independent Bucket factory was started in June 1881, by John Shaefer.
