This tour requires pre-registration.

Join Tulane University professor emeritus John Klingman on a downtown St. Louis walking tour that covers over 150 years of history. Beginning at the north end of the recently restored Gateway Arch National Park, the tour includes Eads Bridge, the first to cross the Mississippi River, and Eero Saarinen's Mid-Century Modernist Gateway Arch. Moving West from the river, the tour passes the Old Cathedral and the Old Courthouse, followed by Warren Byrd's award-winning Citygarden park. The tour officially concludes at Louis Sullivan’s Wainwright Building, one of the most important works of late nineteenth-century American architecture.

For those who wish to continue on post-tour, John has offered to lead a walk to the amazing City Museum. Single day admission ticket not included.
