ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – As St. Louis celebrates its 250th anniversary, C-SPAN is in town for a week, filming stories for a two-day feature on the city that will air later this summer.
At the History Museum on Monday night, C-SPAN producer Debby Lamb says they’ll shoot stories about the Arch and the old Courthouse, but also the history of immigration in St. Louis.
“German immigrants and the brewing industry in St. Louis—Sharon Smith, who’s a prohibition history expert here at the museum, will take a look at that for us,” she says. “We might do it outside the Lemp Brewery because that’s where it all started.”
She says they’ll also visit the Museum of Westward Expansion at the Jefferson National Memorial Expansion, which will provide the story of the Louisiana Purchase, Lewis and Clark, fur-trading and the steamboat era.
Crews will be here all week, and the special will air June 21 and 22 on C-SPAN 2 and C-SPAN 3. It’s part of a series called the C-SPAN Cities Tour.
