This site features a black granite map, flags and a large mural based upon the journal kept by Meriwether Lewis while camped at the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi rivers in 1803. Relive the first steps Lewis and Clark took into the Louisiana territory, November 16, 1803. Located in Whipple Park; I-57, exit 10.
This Lewis and Clark monument sits next to the Capitol, at the corner of Jefferson Street and Capitol Avenue. The sculpture commemorates June 4, 1804, when the Corps of Discovery encamped in the area. The plaza includes statues of Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, York (Clark’s man-servant), George Druillard (French-Canadian-Shawnee hunter and interpreter) and Seaman (Lewis’s Newfoundland dog), plus a journal, telescope, guns and hats. Water features, walkways and benches within the plaza add to the landscape. Docent volunteers are on-site weekends from mid-May through mid-September, pesenting information on the personalities and accomplishments of the figures; Saturdays and Holiday Mondays from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Sundays 2-4 p.m., at no charge.

The nation's tallest monument at 630 feet, the Gateway Arch has beckoned visitors since June 1967. The Gateway Arch commemorates Thomas Jefferson and the role St. Louis played in the westward expansion of the United States.
A visit to St. Louis isn't complete without standing at the Arch's base and playing professional photographer, but the view from the outside is only half of the experience. Attractions within the Arch include the Journey to the Top (the last tram leaves one hour before closing); the Museum of Westward Expansion; educational programs; two movies; and a gift shop.
Closed Thanksgiving, Christmas Day and New Year's Day.
Note: the address shown is for the nearest parking garage, approximately half a block north of the Arch.
