Saint Louis, MO Skyline Pictures

An independent city on the eastern border of Missouri, St. Louis skyline pictures showcase a metropolitan area home to over 2.9 million residents with a number of uniquely innovative constructions. Originally founded in 1764 and named after King Louis IX of France, the development of Saint Louis skyline pictures can be directly attributed to its growth as a major port on the Mississippi River.

Following the Civil War, the population of St. Louis exponentially grew, eventually causing its secession to become an independent city by 1877. While Saint Louis skyline panoramic pictures have become increasingly modern over the past century, one of the most modern and arguably, most iconic landmarks within St. Louis pictures is the Gateway Arch. As the centerpiece of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, it stands 630 feet high and is the tallest man-made monument in the United States.

As one of the oldest settlements along the Mississippi River, St. Louis skyline pictures hold a wide range of architectural styles from virtually any period throughout American history. Some of the most notable landmarks to spot in Saint Louis pictures include Edward Jones Dome, home of the St. Louis Rams professional football franchise; and Busch Stadium, south of the Gateway Arch and home to the St. Louis Cardinals baseball team.

With many excellent examples of 19th century architecture, it is easy to see when viewing St. Louis skyline pictures why this city holds so much fascination, whether for historical interests or for the draw of modern design.
