Popular opinion suggests that St. Louis was founded upon February 15, 1764. Still, arguments can be made for the important occassion having happened on either the 14th or 16th of February that year. Therefore, it is probably not such a big deal that Mother Nature ruined, with her display of ice and brutal cold, the first big attempt at celebrating St. Louis’ 250th anniversary.
