Saint Louis Missouri
701 Convention Plaza, Suite 300
Saint Louis, Missouri 63101
Voice: 800-325-7962

Saint Louis, Missouri is filled with a great deal of history. Most people have heard about the Saint Louis Arch. That is only a tiny part of the rich heritage of Saint Louis. It is one of the largest cities on the United States and is the largest in the State of Missouri.

It was founded in 1764 by Pierre Laclède and Auguste Chouteau, and after the Louisiana Purchase, it became a major port on the Mississippi River. Its population expanded after the American Civil War, and it became the fourth-largest city in the United States in the late 19th century.

In 1904, it hosted the 1904 World's Fair and the 1904 Olympic Games. The city's population peaked in 1950, then began a long decline that reversed only at the beginning of the 21st century.
