Named for the family of Jack Broemmelsiek, who lived on the property for more than 30 years and dedicated their lives to promoting conservation activities, Broemmelsiek Park measures 494 acres in size and features many natural and recreational amenities.
The region - boasting fertile pasture land and an abundant oak-hickory forest - has a long agricultural history in St. Charles County. Records date settlement of the area to the late 1700s, and several structures built on what is now Broemmelsiek Park can be dated to the mid-1800s. To highlight this important link to the County's past, the park's agricultural heritage center (to be added in future development) will display farming operations from the 1800s to the present day.
