Gateway Arch Builders’ Reunion

In honor of the 53rd birthday of the Gateway Arch, the National Park Service will host its annual Arch Builders’ Reunion to honor the many engineers, tradesmen and support staff who contributed to the construction of the Gateway Arch from 1963 to 1965. Arch Builders will share memories and inspire current and future generations about the tenacity of their work ethic and their feats of engineering and craftsmanship that are showcased in the vintage footage of the film.

Representatives of the retired ironmakers from the Pittsburgh-Des Moines Steel Company in Warren, PA will also attend this year’s reunion to mark the opening of the new museum, where photographs, mementos, audio exhibits, and text panels document the workers’ stories and their contributions to the project. The group fabricated the steel sections that were shipped by rail to become the building blocks of the monument.

This event is free and open to the public and will be held at the Museum at the Gateway Arch.
