Established in 1820 as a waypoint between St Louis and St Charles Missouri, Overland has always been regarded as something of a waypoint between the sister cities. As the spread of urbanization from St. Lois has begun to touch Overland, this small city of 17,000 has become more of a bridge than anything else. Still, Overland's function in the cityscape of Missouri still seems to be of a fairly transient nature. Just south of Missouri's Lambert airport and West of University city, Overland's economy is far from self-contained, relying on funds and industry from the outlying areas to feed and house its modest population. Overland does have a few identifiers of its own, and a distinct character unto itself. It is the corporate home of the most adorable company ever, "Build-A-Bear," as well as the central concentrate manufacturing plant for the Dr. Pepper/Snapple group which reigns as the Overland's leading employer. Industry aside, Overland is primarily a residential area for growing families who work elsewhere, and as such what services do exist in the town are geared toward that purpose. Overland, Missouri boasts of no less than five community parks, the largest of which being the Garnett Estate, now owned and maintained by the city and called Wild Acres Park. So what is there to do in Overland, Missouri outside St. Lois? Unless the annual fish-fry is your thing, than those seeking fun would probably be best off traveling the 4 miles to University City, or a further 5 miles to St. Lois.
