Creation of Camelot Estates began in the late 1960s by Cascade Development Corporation. Richard Derringer was the President of the company. Camelot Estates was advertised as a complete development dedicated to the enjoyment of the good life. The ads placed in St. Louis and Kansas City newspapers depicted Camelot as the 'Las Vegas' of Missouri. The original all electric homes sold for $27,500.00. All of the roads were completed in 1970. The Yacht club and Lodge were completed by 1971. The swimming pools and tennis court were completed that same year. The Yacht club was advertised as the year round center of activities at Camelot. It included a billiard room, card room, a teen room, and an area for dancing and socializing.
The picture depicts original advertising used to entice new owner's into Camelot. These flyers were sent out in the early 1970's to people in St. Louis and Kansas City. Many similar advertisments were placed in newspapers all over the U.S. in the late 1960's.
