Long Description:
NOTE: This building no longer exists.

This building located along I-70 just west of downtown St. Louis, was build about 1940 for the St. Louis Ammunition Plant. During World War II, small arms ammunition was made at this plant. During the Korean War and Vietnam War, this building was used to produce artillery rounds. The building ceased production in 1989 and was vacated completely in 1998. The building is awaiting decontamination and then demolition. Until then take a look at this building and see what kind of animal you can see. This building is definitely not open to the public due to its contamination, it is huge and can be seen from quite a distance.
