Very interesting and educational. The cases that were on this docket changed the course of history and to see it up close was amazing.

You should stop here on your visit to st louis. Unfortunately you can't go inside right now. There is some really neat history inside. Also it is a good pic to get the courthouse inside the arch.

Beautiful building
Reviewed By Paradise269263 October 2020

Because of Covid, we were unable to go inside. But, the building is right by the Arch so it was nice to just look at and walk around.
