St. Louis once hosted the most unforgettable world’s fair, the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition. The story of how St. Louis came to be honored as a World’s Fair host and how the fair was carried out can be traced through a number of people memorialized at Bellefontaine. The World’s Fair Trolley Tour will be led by two of our Master Guides.
