The History of the Landing

The last remaining vestige of the old St. Louis riverfront, Laclede’s Landing hearkens back to another time when even commercial buildings were constructed with style and flair. Many of the storefronts date back to the Victorian era and feature heavy use of brickwork and cast iron, masterfully restored to their original glory. Each of the buildings offer shoppers a unique look into a time long ago, each with a story to tell. From the Raeder Place Building, the site of the old Missouri Hotel now a National Historic Landmark, to the stunning 140-year-old Eads Street Bridge, one of the finest examples of early steelwork and a controversial project in its day.
