St. Louis Arsenal

March 6, 2010

Today I visited the St. Louis Arsenal (located basically at Arsenal and the river) hoping to get some photos of the historic buildings (the oldest in the city as far as I know).  I got a few good pictures through the chain link fence and then started to drive away, pausing to snap a photo of the entrance to the Air Force Base.  Moments after I snapped my last shot, four guards ran out demanding my camera and proceeded to delete all of the photographs I had taken around the Arsenal.  Apparently photographing the Arsenal is illegal.  Luckily, I did enjoy driving around the complex and getting a good look at the low stone buildings that have seen so much history.  If anyone wants to get a look at the buildings I would recommend going on the weekends when the parking lot isn’t full of cars obstructing the view and I would also recommend not taking any photographs.
