COMMUNITY PROFILE
FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS
F
airview Heights is
home to St. Clair
Square, the Metro
East’s largest indoor shopping
mall with more than 300
stores.
It is a major retail center
with numerous large department stores, motels, theaters
and restaurants.
This is a dramatic change
from what Fairview Heights
used to be. It has turned from
productive farmland into a
thriving community. After its
incorporation in October of
1969, the city established a
Planning Commission to
review development plans, a
Zoning Board of Appeals, a
LOCAL
LORE
"Minor Change" Committee
and various other committees.
Additional programs and
services designed to meet the
needs of the public, along with
several advisory boards and
volunteer groups all contribute
to the desirability of the city as
a place to live, work and shop.
Each year, thousands of
people visit Fairview Heights
for the"Midwest Salute to the
Masters Festival of Fine Art"
at Longacre Park. Works by
more than 100 regional an
national artists, selected by
jury from thousands of entries,
are exhibited for viewing and
purchase.

The Legend of
the Piasa
T
he Piasa Bird is a local legend in the Alton
area.
Its foundings go back to 1673 when Father
Jacques Marquette, in recording his famous journey
down the Mississippi River with Louis Joliet,
described the "Piasa" as a birdlike monster painted
high on the bluffs along the Mississippi River, where
the city of Alton now stands.
The creature was given its name by the Illini
Indians, “The Piasa,” meaning a bird that devours
men.
There are many legends regarding its origin. One
of the more popular accounts goes like this:
“Many moons ago, there existed a birdlike creature of such great size, he could easily carry off a full
grown deer in his talons. His taste, however, was for
human flesh.
“Hundreds of warriors attempted to destroy the
Piasa, but failed. Whole villages were destroyed and
fear spread throughout the Illini tribe. Ouatoga, a
chief whose fame extended even beyond the Great
Lakes, separated himself from his tribe, fasted in
solitude for the space of a whole moon, and prayed
to the Great Spirit to protect his people from the
Piasa.
“On the last night of his fast, the Great Spirit
appeared to Ouatoga in a dream and directed him to
select 20 warriors, arm them each with a bow and
poisoned arrow, and conceal them in a designated
spot. Another warrior was to stand in an open view,
as a victim for the Piasa.
“When the chief awoke in the morning, he told the
tribe of his dream. The warriors were quickly selected and placed in ambush. Ouatoga offered himself as
the victim. Placing himself in open view, he soon
saw the Piasa perched on the bluff eyeing his prey.
Ouatoga began to chant the death song of a warrior.
The Piasa took to the air and swooped down upon
the chief. The Piasa had just reached his victim when
every bow was sprung and every arrow sent sailing
into the body of the beast. The Piasa uttered a fearful scream that echoed down the river, and died.
“Ouatoga was safe, and the tribe saved.”
The re-creation of the original painting has been a
local landmark and, until just recently, could be seen
on the bluff just north of Alton on the Great River
Road. Due to weather damage and an increase in
local traffic, the painting had been removed for
restoration and relocation.
The Piasa Bird now rules over the River Bend
once again.
