Anniversary of the Completion of the Saint Louis Arch

Saint Louis Arch.jpg

On October 28, 1965, construction was completed on Saint Louis's spectacular Gateway Arch. The 630-foot-high landmark was erected to commemorate the Louisiana Purchase of 1803 and to highlight the city's role in the westward expansion that followed. To find out other events that have happened on specific days, check out the website This Day in History, which you can link to under the History category on the Milwaukee Public Library's Recommended Links page.
