After separating from St. Louis County in 1877, St. Louis became an independent city known for its rapid industrial expansion. During the 20th century, St. Louis experienced several urban renewal projects. Since the 1980s, revitalization efforts have focused on downtown St. Louis. The Gateway Arch, designed by architect Eero Saarinen and built in 1965, reflects St. Louis' role in the Westward Expansion of the United States during the 19th century.
