Experience St Louis in a whole new way!
Thursday, May 8, 2014
SCHS is offering the bus trip “St Louis History” on Thursday, May 8. We gather for this full day of activities at 7:30 am at St. Lucas UCC’s east parking lot (far north end). The bus departs at 8 am and will return about 3:00 pm.
See the sites and meet the people that have made the great 250 year history of St. Louis. The tour will cover St. Louis history from Mississippian Mound Builders and French colonial times, the start of the Oregon Trail leading out from St. Louis to the rapid growth of St. Louis into a great regional city, through the difficult days of the Civil War, to the rise of the great industrial city in the late 19th and 20th centuries, a city of beer brewing, the manufacture of shoes, airplanes and spacecraft. Did you know that the Old Cathedral stands on the only piece of land in St. Louis that has never been bought or sold?
The St. Louis History bus tour is designed and narrated by tour director Maureen Kavanaugh for SCHS.
Lunch at the Old Spaghetti Factory is your choice of spaghetti/meatballs, baked lasagna, or fettuccine. Salad, bread, dessert (spumoni ice cream), and coffee, tea or milk are included. Other drinks are by cash bar. Gluten-free meals are available.
