The outdoors is big in Moscow Mills, as are outdoor activities like hiking and bow hunting. But the beauty of Moscow Mills is how it manages to blend both a beautiful natural setting and a convenient business district.


Settlers began arriving in Lincoln County in the late 1790s, attracted by Spanish land grants. In 1817, one Shapley Ross bought a saw and grist mill here, whereupon he moved his large household. He then built a stone house on the hill overlooking the mill and the river; that house stands today and is home to the Lincoln County Genealogical Society.

The city was named after that original mill— and for the Russian capital, after the practice of naming towns after foreign capital cities.


Moscow Mills is just off Highway 61, which becomes interstate 64/40 closer to the city of St. Louis. It is about an hour away from the city, and 45 minutes from Lambert St. Louis International airport.


Home town attitude with a vision for the future.
