Gateway Arch in St. Louis Being Built

• March 23, 2015

If you have ever been to St. Louis, you’ve clearly seen this national landmark. The St. Louis Arch, part of the National Park known as the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, was constructed between 1963 and 1965. It was officially inaugurated in 1968, the same year the St. Louis Cardinals were in the World Series against the Detroit Tigers.

Below are some terrific photos of the arch under construction in the 1960s.
