Description
Located on Government Hill, the World's Fair Pavilion opened in 1910 as a gift from the Louisiana Purchase Exposition Committee; it helped fulfill their promise to restore the park after the 1904 World's Fair. Designed by English architect Henry Wright, the pavilion originally cost $35,000 to build. In the early 2000s, the building underwent a $1.1 million restoration with the addition of new restrooms and a catering kitchen.[47] The eastern archways of the building were removed (thereby opening the building to its original state), new lighting was installed, and the twin towers of the building were reconstructed. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forest_Park_%28St._Louis%29#The_World.27s_Fair_Pavilion
