A man with the last name of Kinloch owned a plantation, in the norther suburbs of St. Louis, after slavery the plantation was named the city of Kinloch, as it remains today.

Kinloch is the oldest Black community west of the Mississippi, and has a very rich history.

Kinloch in the early 20th century was a center for Jazz, Blues and Ragtime that was known all across america, when Teddy Roosevelt took his first ride in an airplane he took it over Kinloch.

Today Kinloch is signifigantly smaller and less populated than it once was, because the St. Louis airport has bought uo so much property in Kinloch and tore down houses but it is still an historic community.
