1887 St. Louis Exposition

St. Louis, Missouri

The Fourth Annual St. Louis Exposition opened on the evening of September 7, 1887. News reports noted the expectation of a large turnout, as the Grand Army of the Republic planned an encampment and President Cleveland and his wife planned to visit during opening week. An estimated 20,000 visitors turned out to see the exhibits and the band entertainment in the Music Hall. One so-called dollar was struck for this exposition. The details are cataloged in my 2023 book So-Called Dollars Volume I: United States Expositions. Click on the “View All” link below to see them.
