St. Louis Levee

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

St. Louis was a river city, and it therefore developed in response to its relationship to the river. Development, particularly economic development, clustered around the settlement’s Mississippi River bank on what was called “the levee” and is now called “the landing.”
