St. Louis Mercantile Library Tour

Join us at the St. Louis Mercantile Library for a free, docent-led tour of the Library, including the new exhibition "Headlines of History",
which marks the growth and special nature of the collections of the Mercantile by focusing on one of the most used and important holdings at this research center, its newspapers.  This important exhibition features such items as the first known issue of the Missouri Gazette, the oldest newspaper printed west of the Mississippi; and an issue of the Pennsylvania Ledger from July 13, 1776 marking the first printing of the Declaration of Independence in a newspaper. Our weekend tours provide a wonderful opportunity for lively discussions about topics ranging from the founding of St. Louis to the Mercantile’s art collections, railroad and steamboat travel plus much more!  No reservations are required.
