Today, Memorial Day, I finally made a trip down to see the remodeled exterior of St. Louis Soldiers Memorial Museum. It’s just a few short blocks from my beloved Campbell House.
It’s also where my STL250 cake sculpture was placed during the city’s 250th Anniversary celebration. Here’s a pic from a few years ago with my cake that Memorial Day:
So please enjoy these photos, as they remind us how some gave all, and freedom is not free.
Each corner has round sculptures with the major fronts/battles engraved on the bases.
The entrances on both sides are guarded by immense eagle, male, female, and winged horses statuary:
An immense anchor Memorial represents the Naval and Merchant Marine forces:
The plaza in front of the Memorial has the names of those lives lost, the military divisions, and more Memorial sculptures and plaques:
More Memorial dates:
Additional architecture surrounds the Memorial. In this pic (left to right) you see the lower Civil Courts building, Federal Courthouse (the tallest building), City Hall (the German style brown roof building), and City Courts.
The Courts and the Stifel Center:
The tall building below is the renovated Park Pacific tower, the Christ Church Cathedral is behind that, followed by the Shell Oil building:
Above is the taller Civil Courts building.
The American Legion Memorial is in the park just to the west:
