St. Louis, Missouri — The American Midwest (Upper Plains)
This view of Government Hill is a piece of St. Louis history. The area and its features were established after the 1904 World's Fair, but fell into disrepair years later.
Forest Park Forever partnered with the City of St. Louis to restore it to glory. Artful, accessible landscaping has made the area more than ever — 365 days a year.
Erected by Forest Park Forever.
