If you haven’t been to the Old Courthouse in downtown St. Louis in a long time, or even at all, you should take some time to go explore the galleries. It’s a beautiful old building!
The interior is just as lovely as the exterior:
There are several different galleries that illustrate both the history of the courthouse and the city itself:
There are also many beautiful staircases that will take you up just about as far as you’d want to go (or, in my case, way farther…I really need to work on my fear of heights!):
You can go in one of the old courtrooms (kind of):
And you don’t want to miss the Dred Scott statue on the east side of the building!
Yet another St. Louis treasure that we were fortunate to have some time to explore!
