Oakville History

The area of Oakville that is located in the southern point where the Meramec and the Mississippi Rivers meet, has been settled since before the Louisiana Purchase in 1804. Several early settlers where given extensive Spanish land grants in the late 1780s. One of them was Jean Baptiste D'Gamache Jr. who surveyed the land for the Spanish road known as El Camino Real or "The King's Highway" that extended from St Louis to New Madrid Missouri. That road later became part of Telegraph Road. D'Gamache also ran a ferry across the Meramec at about where Telegraph Road crosses it today. Another early settler was Phillip Fine, Sr. He established two ferries, one across the Mississippi and one across the Meramec. At one time his son, Benjamin Fine, had plans to establish a river town and even filed plats but his plans never came about. A road in Oakville is named "Finestown" as a reminder of his idea.
