St. Louis City Hall

St. Louis City Hall was founded in 1890 and completed in 1904, the same year as the World’s Fair came to St. Louis.  St. Louis City Hall was designed in the likeness of Paris City Hall and the interior is decorated with marble and gold trim.  The offices of the Mayor, City Board of Aldermen, and St. Louis Department of Public Safety are all houses in the City Hall Building.

St. Louis is the second largest city in Missouri, but when you including St. Louis County it is the largest metropolitan area in Missouri.  The City Hall Building is located along the Mississippi River and 15 miles south of where the Missouri River meets with the Mississippi River.  Because St. Louis was a major port along the Mississippi River and a very important crossing place for people moving West in the 19th Century, it was important to have a very distinctive and beautiful City Hall building, which is why it was designed after the City Hall of Paris in the French style.  Due to age, coal pollution and other issues, the building has lost its original pinkish and gold hues on the exterior and has darkened and dirtier looking, leading the City of St. Louis to look into the best ways to restore its original beauty in the last 1990’s.
