BIRTHDAY: Gateway Arch

The iconic monument that makes the Saint Louis skyline instantly recognizable.  The Gateway Arch, the nation's tallest monument, is the centerpiece of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial honoring Saint Louis' role in the United States' expansion westward with the Louisiana Purchase.
The Arch was completed on this date in 1965, designed by architect Eero Saarinen

Stop by the Museum of Westward Expansion on Saturdays and get a little history lesson from puppet Napoleon
