GHOSTS OF THE ARCH GROUNDS
October 21, 2017
6:30 pm: "Ghosts of the Arch Grounds" ranger led talk. Meet at the south leg of the Arch to learn about the various "incarnations" of the Arch Grounds as it evolved from French Colonial village to a warehouse district to the present National Park site, as well as some of the adventures and misadventures of some of the famous people in the area. This will be a historical rather than a "supernatural" tour, although the area has had its share of tragedy. This talk will take place unless there is heavy rain.
7-8:30 pm Weather permitting, volunteers from the St. Louis Astronomical Society will present free telescope viewing near the south leg of the Arch. Objects like the cresecent moon and Saturn will be visble. The telescope viewing could be cancelled in the event of cloudy skies- call 314-655-1750 x472 the afternoon of the event for an update on the weather.
