Part of the aura of Wildwood Springs Lodge is the history. History rooted in the people, hills and rivers around Steelville Missouri. The lodge was built in the early 1920s and was a large undertaking for that period. The contractor started construction on Jan 16, 1922. The doors opened for business Memorial Day of the same year. The people involved included A.O. Liefield and William J. Casey of the St. Louis Browns; Adam Bubb of the Brown Shoe Company; William Reinert of the St. Louis Globe Democrat; and Charles Raymond, publicity manager for Paramount Picture Corporation, Wildwood.It’s all about you…. you are the one that needs to relax, get-away, hide from the 21st century. You are the one that might like to read a book on the front porch with the morning sunlight and cool breeze, or maybe watch the fog burn off the river valley from the dining room’s porch holding a warm cup of coffee in your hands. You could also take a walk on one of the trails and enjoy the sights and sounds of Zahorsky Woods.
