St. Louis has so much to offer visitors and history lovers. Find prehistoric bone beds at Mastodon State Park or hum a tune at the National Blues Museum. Trace the path of westward expansion at the Gateway Arch National Park or see the Old Courthouse, where Dred Scott and hundreds of other enslaved persons sued for their freedom. Always be on the lookout for mention of one of the highlights of St. Louis history, the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition. Tour the First State Capitol of Missouri and the starting point of the Lewis and Clark Expedition on historic Main Street in nearby St. Charles. Authors Vicki and Jim Erwin offer the history of the Gateway City as you’ve never seen before.
