Beneath the identifying icon of the city of Saint Louis, the Gateway Arch, is the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, a park that honors the geographical growth of the United States.  The 91-acre memorial was established along the Mississippi River in 1935 as a tribute to the Louisiana Purchase and the subsequent pioneer movement, the first civil government west of the Mississippi River, and the debate over slavery raised by the Dred Scott case. It is appropriately located near the starting point of Louis and Clark’s expedition.

The monument was created as homage to President Thomas Jefferson’s contribution to the western movement of the United States. The park consists of the Gateway Arch, the Museum of Western Expansion and the Old Courthouse.  Vibrant gardens and brilliant green lawns decorate the paths that lead throughout the park, allowing you to walk on the same ground tread by Lewis and Clark centuries ago. Even just the stunning view of the shimmering Mississippi River is enough to make this park a worthwhile attraction. For information, call (314) 655-1700.
