This is my contribution for the feature Saturday Statues by Suvi.
On a visit to St. Louis, Missouri, history buffs will appreciate the Old Courthouse. In this courthouse the infamous Dred Scott trial took place. There is a museum and displays that tell the history of the Dred Scott case. In front of the courthouse is a statue of Dred Scott and his wife, Harriet.
Another historical site in St. Louis is the Old Cathedral,a short walk from the Old Courthouse. This cathedral is still in use but the Basilica of St. Louis is now the main Catholic Cathedral. While the basilica is full of luxurious mosaics, the old cathedral contains several statues of saints and the holy family, beautiful in their simplicity.
