Dutchtown is our neighborhood on the South Side of St. Louis, home to a lot of history and a changing future. We are St. Louis’s most populous and densest neighborhood. We embrace the diversity of our neighbors and have big plans to make Dutchtown a better place to live for everyone regardless of race, economic status, religious background, or any other factor. We are Dutchtown Proud.
We’ve got room for everyone who wants to be part of a strong neighborhood with a lot of momentum. Come visit us—we’d love to show you around. Move in next door to us. Open your business here. Invest in the future of our neighborhood. There’s something for everyone in Dutchtown.
Neighbors who know and look out for each other form the backbone of a strong community. An organized block, no matter how formally or informally organized, increases safety, improves aesthetics, attracts new neighbors, and gets things done. Learn how to organize your block at dutchtownstl.org/blocks.
We’ve got resources to help you interact, communicate, and plug in with your neighbors to get organized.

In 2020, Dutchtown non-profits faced unprecedented challenges and provided unparalleled responses to a nationwide pandemic that continues nine months after it began. Though our neighborhood organizations have come through for Dutchtown and its residents, resources have been stretched to their limits. This Giving Tuesday, we ask that you offer whatever support you can to keep our community organizations on track to help keep our community strong and united.
