Ill. sites listed as significant to St. Louis

SPRINGFIELD (AP) — As St. Louis celebrates its 250th birthday, some Illinois historic sites are being recognized for their significance to the city.

Three historic sites and one monument from Illinois are on a list of 250 places compiled by stl250. The group's list includes sites, tourist attractions and businesses they say have made St. Louis what it is today.

Cahokia Mounds, Cahokia Courthouse, and Lewis and Clark state historic sites all made the cut from Illinois. The Elijah Lovejoy Memorial in Alton, Ill. also made the list.

Amy Martin is the director of the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency. She says the Illinois sites represent important eras in St. Louis history, from Native American achievements to battles against slavery.

The list also includes places such as the Gateway Arch and Fox Theatre.
