Allenton is a former community on U.S. Highway 66 located (now) at the junction of Interstate 44 and Business Loop 44 in western St. Louis County. In 1985 it was annexed by the city of Eureka. Six Flags St. Louis is just north of the interstate exit. The town is currently rural, with adjacent farm land and forested Ozark ridges.
Allenton was declared blighted by St. Louis County in 1973 and is slated to be redeveloped with retail and residential uses.
