Many of the most fascinating buildings to ever dot the St. Louis landscape have been lost to time, disaster, or destruction. In Lost Buildings of St. Louis, the stories behind several of these buildings will be brought back to life.

Some of these buildings were monumental landmarks. Some were everyday places for family and community. Still others were one-of-a-kind oddities. The dates of their destruction range from the early 1800s to post-2010.

The memories of these lost buildings have faded, but rediscovering them can tell us much about the changing values St. Louisans have pursued throughout the city’s history.
