In 2009, the River Front Times named Southampton as the #1 Place to Live in the St. Louis Metro Area.
Particularly in the 25-35 age bracket, SoHa is a top residential area for families. The first homes were built around 1905. The most popular, the brick “Arts and Crafts” homes, were primarily built in the 1930. The neighborhood was named after the original building supervisors native town of Southampton, England, and it's common to see streets with an English flair like Nottingham, Devonshire, Murdoch, and Sutherland.
Early residents of the beautiful area carried water to their homes from a spring at Nottingham and Kingshighway until the water main was constructed. At one time, Southampton had been considered as a prime location for the 1904 World’s Fair, but the lack of adequate transportation facilities bumped it out of the running.
Today the area is teaming with families who enjoy the many beautiful parks, restaurants, and shops.
Located in the Southwestern region of St. Louis city between Chippewa, Hampton, Kingshighway, and Eichelberger, Southampton is home to a growing population.
