ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The Gateway City's 250th birthday party is still more than three years away, but community leaders are already thinking about how St. Louis will celebrate two-and-a-half centuries of existence.
Missouri History Museum president Robert Archibald is leading the planning group preparing for the 2014 commemoration. He told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that the working name for the celebration is "STL250," though that may change.
There is also some debate as to the actual date of the founding of St. Louis. Some say it was Feb. 14, 1764. Others say it was Feb. 15.
Archibald says the goal is to organize a commemoration that includes the entire region.
