The Gateway Arch was designed by architect Eero Saarinen and celebrates the diverse people who shaped the region and the country including Thomas Jefferson, who negotiated the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, to Lewis & Clark and their Shoshone guide Sacagawea who scouted the new territory and mapped a route to the Pacific Ocean.
