Night at the Brewseum: The History of Architecture in St. Louis
One of Downtown’s jewels of historic preservation is the setting for the next Night at the Brewseum on Sept. 19. Wander the grounds and galleries of Soldiers Memorial Military Museum and explore where the past meets the present. The 1930s-era building re-opened last year as a Gold LEED-certified, no-waste facility that honors St. Louisans’ stories of service with state-of-the-art displays and interactive exhibits.
Then grab a cold brew and hear from an engaging panel that includes staff and historians from the Missouri Historical Society—including Soldiers Memorial Division Director Mark Sundlov, MHS Public Historian Andrew Wanko and MHS Facilities and Sustainability Coordinator Angela Moore—as well as entrepreneur Randy Vines, City of St. Louis Preservation Board member, Next City Vanguard and co-creator of STL-Style.
Historic preservation and urban renewal will be themes throughout the evening, with panelists also touching on topics like civic pride and neighborhood revitalization through a mix of current local stories and historical context.
The evening, part of an ongoing series highlighting the history of St. Louis, concludes with time for networking and mingling—and admiring more of the building’s interior Art Deco details.
Night at the Brewseum: The History of Architecture in St. Louis is Sept. 19 from 6-8 p.m. To reserve your spot to this free event, RSVP from the online event page.
