National Council for Home Safety and Security ranks O’Fallon 9th on list of Missouri’s 50 safest cities

The National Council of Home Safety and Security this week published its “Safest Cities in Missouri” report which includes O’Fallon, Missouri, as 9th safest of Missouri’s cities with populations of more than 5,000. The average size of the cities the organization deemed safest is 26,562. With a population of 85,040, O’Fallon is easily the largest of the cities of the report’s top 10. Read the report here.

To identify Missouri’s safest cities, the council reviewed FBI Uniform Crime Report Statistics from 2016 along with the organization’s own population data and internal research. The cities’ rankings were then based on the number of reported violent crimes (aggravated assault, murder, rape, and robbery) and property crimes (burglary, arson, larceny-theft, and motor vehicle theft) per 100,000 people.

O’Fallon’s Historic Preservation Commission sponsors Black History Month display

In honor of Black History Month, O’Fallon’s Historic Preservation Commission has set up a display honoring the history of African Americans in the City of O’Fallon. The display of photos – some more than 75 years old – features portraits of some of O’Fallon’s earliest African American residents. The photos are on display in the Rotunda and Lobby on the first floor of the O’Fallon Municipal Center (City Hall). The display is free to view and open to the public Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. throughout the month of February.

“Today, we know O’Fallon as a diverse suburban community with grand subdivisions and bustling restaurants and stores, but this City has a long history that stretches more than 160 years,” said Jim Frain, who put the display together and is a member of the Historic Preservation Commission. “O’Fallon – like many Midwestern towns of the early 20th Century – was once a largely segregated town where a strong African-American community grew on several blocks in the City, known as ‘The Hill.’ The area included churches and schools and a ‘blacks-only’ cemetery called Sage Chapel Cemetery. The Cemetery was founded in 1881 as a burial site for former slaves and their descendants. Many of the original tombstones still stand at the site along Veterans Memorial Parkway.
