Under the Arch is the Museum of Westward Expansion where animated exhibits tell the story in the words of those whose lives shaped the American West, from the Louisiana Purchase to the closing of the frontier in 1890. It was from nearby Hartford, Illinois that the Lewis and Clark Expedition departed in 1804. While the West was being settled, the issue of slavery was not. Here at the Old Courthouse, Dred Scott successfully sued for his freedom in 1850. Unfortunately, for millions of African-Americans, freedom wouldn’t come until after the American Civil War. In 1948, Architect Eero Saarinen won a national contest held to determine the design of the memorial. Over 5000 tons of steel were used to build the triangular shaped arch. The entire surface of the Arch is stainless steel plates.
