O'Fallon Real Estate and Community Information

Close to Scott Air Force Base, O’Fallon is located in St. Clair County, Illinois, and is home to over 28,000 residents. As part of the St. Louis Metropolitan Statistical Area, O’Fallon is a fast growing community and is the third largest city in the Metro-East region. The air force base has helped bolster the population with military and federal personnel, contractor, and retired military residents.

O’Fallon traces its beginnings to 1854, when city plots were sold at a public auction. It was named after a wealthy gentleman from St. Louis, Colonel John O'Fallon. O’Fallon was incorporated as a village in 1874, and became a city government in 1905. The city has grown steadily since then, especially since the 1980s. Subdivisions such as Thornbury Hill, Fairwood Hills, Nolin Creek Estates, Forest Hills, Deer Creek, and Fairwood East sprang up during the 1990s as a result of the expansion of Interstate 64.
