As of the 2010 census, the population was 47,484, making it the state's fourteenth-largest city.The broader valley of Chesterfield was originally referred to as "Gumbo Flats", derived from its soil, which though very rich and silty, became like a gumbo when wet. Geographically, Chesterfield is half the size of St. Louis.GeographyChesterfield is located about 25mi west of St. Louis, Missouri. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 33.52sqmi, of which, 31.78sqmi is land and 1.74sqmi is water.Portions of Chesterfield are located in the floodplain of the Missouri River, now known as Chesterfield Valley, formerly Gumbo Flats. This area was submerged during the Great Flood of 1993; higher levees built since then have led to extensive commercial development in the valley. Chesterfield Valley is the location of Spirit of St. Louis Airport, used for corporate aviation, as well as the longest outdoor strip mall in America. The remainder of Chesterfield is located on the bluffs above the floodplain, and includes residential and retail development. Chesterfield is also home to several mid- to high-rise buildings, the tallest being the Drury Plaza Hotel, which is 12 stories and 125 feet tall.Add Chesterfield and other destinations in United States to your travel itinerary using our United States itinerary builder tool.
