For now Old Slave Road,a  private street in Wildwood, will retain its name.

The Suburban Journals of Greater St. Louis reports a city council committee is recommending that the town keep Old Slave Road as the name of a private street. The city council has the final say. 

Wildwood’s Administration/Public Works Committee voted 6-1 last week to keep the name.

One resident, Karen Fox, who lives on Old Slave Road, filed paperwork in October to change the name to Elijah Madison Lane.

Some have said the Old Slave Road name honors the area’s history and the black families who lived there descendants of slaves who came to the area from Virginia in 1837. Others find the name offensive.
