As part of the Historical Society's 40th Anniversary year we have a terrific program planned for September 20, 2018, 7 PM in the Council Chambers
We are having a Searchlight party with treats and Program and asking $5 per adult to attend, to cover food and beverages costs.
Jim Kirchherr with KETC, who made the video of the searchlight, and Bill Kaufman, the only person who knows how to operate the light, will be giving the lecture and then Bill will go up the winding stairway and get the light going.
What's your favorite longstanding local business?
The Historical Society of University City is creating a list of businesses that have been a part of our U. City business community for 50 or more years (any business open by 1966, and still operating today). If you know of one of these long-time businesses, or if you own or work for one, please post below or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Send us their name and address and any history you know about this business. Thanks for your help.
NiNi Harris, author of "Legacy of Lions," will talk about her new book THIS USED TO BE ST. LOUIS at 7 pm Thurs. Oct 18 at University City public library.
