St. Louis, MO Photos

St. Louis, Missouri celebrates its history as the Gateway to Westward expansion marked by its renowned Gateway Arch. The town site gained its importance by being at the confluence of the north-south Mississippi River and the westward Missouri River, facilitating the Lewis & Clark expedition and later Riverboat traffic. When the Eads Bridge was built in 1874 trains and later roads like Route 66 started funneling through St. Louis. Being a transportation center made the city wealthy which accounts for the many heritage buildings and museums seen today.
