Century Building demolition




The website savethecentury.org documents the day-by-day destruction of the famed Century Building in St. Louis. The building was constructed in 1896. Being listed in the National Register of Historic Places did not save it from demolition.

The December issue of The Commonspace published Michael R. Allen’s essay We Lose More than the Century Building.
