Gateway Arch

in Historic

Jefferson National Expansion Memorial (JNEM) was created in 1935, and became part of the National Park Service. Civic leader Luther Ely Smith conceived the idea of building a memorial to help revive the riverfront and memorialize the story of the nation’s westward expansion. Through a nationwide design competition conducted 1947–1948, Eero Saarinen’s stainless steel Arch was chosen as the memorial that would celebrate the accomplishments of early pioneers.
