Eureka earned its name via joyous builders for Missouri Pacific Railroad that cried “Eureka” when they saw the layout of the land for the passageway through the area, declares the city’s website. Located on the outskirts of metropolitan St. Louis real estate on I- 44 in Franklin County, Eureka has grown in recent years to include a wider selection of restaurants and commercial properties. However, the country charm of the area remains with the luxurious views that can be seen in rolling hills covering much of Eureka, Mo. real estate.
