City Facts for Edwardsville, IL

Like many St. Louis suburbs, Edwardsville got its start in the early 1800s, and it is generally acknowledged as the third oldest city in Illinois. Home to Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, this charming St. Louis suburb offers residents a wealth of amenities. The city has nearly 40 designated historic buildings, including the 1909 Wildey Theater where you can still enjoy live performances and movies. Golfers can hit the links at the Sunset Hill Country Club, and the Gardens at SIUE are a popular choice for scenic strolls.

American’s iconic highway, Route 66, runs straight through Edwardsville, and every year the city hosts the Edwardsville Route 66 Festival, a celebration of classic cars, great food, and family fun.

Modest ranch and Cape Cod, as well spacious Victorian and Craftsman style homes are common in Edwardsville. One of the city’s most famous early settlers, congressman and Col. Benjamin Stephenson, left his distinct mark on Edwardsville’s architecture. The stately Federal brick homes you see in Upper Edwardsville were built by Col. Stephenson and, thanks to the city’s restoration efforts, his home still stands today. At the end of the 19th century, industrialist N.O. Nelson, one of the early adopters of profit sharing, built a plumbing fixture manufacturing facility and a number of small but attractive new homes for his employees. The project was named LeClaire, and today it is an Edwardsville historic district.

Kitchen Remodeling in Edwardsville, IL

A lot has changed in kitchen design since the early 1800s when Edwardsville was established. What hasn’t changed, though, is the important role the kitchen plays in your family’s life. While state-of-the-art appliances and high tech products have replaced the simple open hearths and hand forged utensils, the kitchen remains at the center of everyday life.

Everyone dreams of a kitchen that will meet their family’s current lifestyle and aesthetic preferences, so at J.T. McDermott we begin each remodel with a conversation that helps us get to know you and how you live. Do you love entertaining large crowds? Will the kids be hanging out in the kitchen doing homework while dinner’s being prepared? Are you a fan of cozy nooks or clean, modern lines? Only after we get to know who you are can we begin to design the kitchen that’s right for your home and family.

If your home improvement plan includes a kitchen remodel, the team approach that is integral to design-build will bring your wants and needs to life. The design-build method means we work exclusively with you to create the kitchen that perfectly matches your family’s lifestyle.
