The Chesterfield Family YMCA was established in 1965 as an extension of the Kirkwood Family YMCA. For 24 years the branch operated as a non-facility YMCA until 1989 when construction of a 63,000 square foot building on nine acres of land donated by Louis Sachs was completed, including a full-facility YMCA plus a community theatre and early childhood education center. Prior to the new building, the branch was the largest non-facility YMCA in the country. A 6,600 square foot addition was completed in 1993 with additions that included racquetball courts and a 5,000 square foot addition in 2001 that added a strength-training center.
