Gateway Arch
Gateway Arch
Dedicated in 1966, the Gateway Arch anchors Jefferson National Expansion Memorial Park on the western bank of the Mississippi River. The park itself grew out of a program to upgrade a blighted riverbank in the 1930s. With dilapidated structures demolished, the barren site served for several years chiefly as a parking lot, a victim of the Great Depression and World War II.
