The settlement was founded and named in 1859 by Theodore Kimm (a German merchant from St Louis who purchased a tract of land/large parcel here in 1950) and started to develop following the completion of the St Louis Iron Mountain Railway (between St Louis and Pilot Knob MO) in 1858.

Kimmswick Historic District (developed in the period 1859-1940 ) encompasses 44 buildings, a site, and a structure. Among the District's most popular buildings/tourist attractions are the 19th-century buildings Barbagallo House (1850), Franz A Hermann House and Brewery (1859), Bernard Klein House and Horninghauser House (1865), Phillip Meyer Building (1875), The Old Market (1877), Martin Meyer Building (1880), Rauschenbach Building (1884).

Since an adjacent bridge was constructed (to serve motorized traffic), the Windsor Harbor Road Bridge is now open only to pedestrians.
