Berger is home to a little more than a handful of people in Eastern Franklin County. For many years, it was a secret storage site for hazardous waste.

In fact, metropolitan Saint Louis, with its hundreds of specialists, is about an hour's drive away. A person can live in Berger and enjoy the rural life as well as quick access to big-city amenities.
