17 Staggering Photos Of An Abandoned Shopping Mall Hidden In St. Louis

St. Louis is a city with a story to tell, but locals oftentimes forget that. The city dates back to 1764, when a 13-year-old scout helped a land grant recipient select a plot of land for a fur trading post. Since then, the city has changed dramatically. The city continues to evolve and change, a fact which we are reminded of when we gaze upon the entrancing photos of a building that sat abandoned for decades.

This stunning building has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 2003, and now it has a new life breathed into it. Its beauty has been restored, but these haunting images of the past remind us of what St. Louis’ inner city once was.
