A Walk in 1875 St. Louis Exhibit

May 30, 2015, 10:00 am TO 5:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)
| Missouri History Museum | Free

One of the most amazing maps ever created was Compton & Dry’s Pictorial St. Louis, which was created between 1874 and 1876 and features every single home, building, street, and even tree in St. Louis in accurate perspective. The map divided the city into individual 11 inch x 18 inch plates that could be pieced together. In this exhibit, the maps will be blown up to 10 x 30 feet, allowing visitors to see every detail. In addition to the maps, visitors will see images, experience interactives, and read stories of life in 1875.
