Living in Swansea, IL

Swansea was founded in the late 1800s, and provided a unique mix of commerce, farming and manufacturing communities. The village’s 35 residents petitioned the county government for official status in 1886, and annexed themselves from the nearby town of Belleville. Today, Swansea is a quiet suburb outside of St. Louis. The village’s slogan reads “A good place to live, and growing better every day,” which demonstrates the passion local authorities have for making the community a safe, nurturing home for families of all ages. Residents can live in Swansea apartments to take advantage of the city’s low living expenses. Swansea’s cost of living index of 88.7 is well below the national average.
