The Landmarks Association of St. Louis held its annual gala at a private home on Longfellow Avenue in St. Louis.  Guests were treated to cocktails and light bites followed by the presentation of the H. Meade Summer Jr. Award Winner: Mary Strauss on behalf of the Strauss Family Legacy.  Mary Strauss and the Strauss family legacy was honored for the astounding contributions that they have made, and continue to make, to building and restoring a unique, historic, and vital St. Louis. For nearly sixty years, Landmarks Association has argued that the architectural heritage of St. Louis is an irreplaceable cultural and economic asset. Our community is very fortunate that members of the Strauss family feel the same way!
