Williams, owner of Saint Louis Cellars Wine Store and Saint Louis Closet Co. is proud to be one of the founding members of the group of women to push Women in History Month to the forefront of Maplewood’s celebration. Maplewood Female-owned businesses have also been springing up all over the city in recent years, with over 25% of all businesses currently being owned by women. The City of Maplewood was founded in 1908 after a fire in January 1908 at the Banner Lumber Company resulting in nine buildings being destroyed. The citizens of the city felt that the St. Louis City Fire Companies could not provide sufficient fire protection so the community decided to incorporate, doing so in May 1908, primarily to provide fire protection and schools. Today more than ever women are playing a huge role in the city of Maplewood’s resurgence as a destination in the St. Louis area. Source: maplewood-brentwood.patch.com
