Meet the Builders

On Saturday, October 23 & Thursday, October 28, the National Park Service will host its annual Meet the Builders reunion to honor the engineers, tradesmen and support staff who contributed to the construction of the Gateway Arch from 1963 to 1965. Meet the Builders celebrates the 56th anniversary of the completion of the monument, which occurred on October 28, 1965.

At the events, a small group of the builders will share memories, private memorabilia and photographs with attendees, and sign autographs. Meet the Builders is free and open to the public, and will be held in the Arch’s tram lobby from 10:00 a.m. to noon on both days. The Arch Store, located in the tram lobby, will sell $1 commemorative posters for autographing.
