Text description of the exhibit from the library:
Join us for this amazing exhibit featuring some magnificent local architecture. St. Louis offers an extraordinarily rich architectural heritage. Visitors to St. Louis are frequently amazed by its buildings. Our legacy of brick and stonework, superb craftsmanship, and attention to design have left us with stunning examples of institutional, ecclesiastical, commercial and residential buildings.
The exhibit features a life-size replica of the Wainwright Tomb at Bellefontaine Cemetery (1892), stained glass windows from the Frank Lloyd Wright House in Ebsworth Park (Kirkwood, Mo.), wall murals highlighting St. Louis' rich architectural history and display cases showcasing rare books from SLPL's amazing Steedman Architectural Library.
