History of Ballwin
John Ball - Our City's founding Father

Most Ballwin residents are probably unaware that our City's founding Father, John Ball, is not buried within the boundaries of the City he founded back in 1837.
On the night of August 31, 1859, John Ball passed away after a long illness. He was buried in Block 16 of the Community Burial Grounds that he had set aside for such purposes when he laid out the town of Ballwin, twenty-two years earlier.

But, as we all know, nothing gets in the way of progress, especially during that time in our county's history. Several years later, the path of Missouri Highway 100 (Manchester Road) was changed, taking up part of Block 16 and the monuments and remains of those buried there were moved to other cemeteries. Highway 100, the Masonic Hall and several homes now occupy Block 16. The markers and remains of John Ball and his wife, Mary, were moved to the Methodist cemetery in Manchester next to Woods Mill Road, thus completing the final chapter in the story of John Ball of Ballwin.
