The Old Rock House sat at the foot of Chestnut Street, on Wharf Street (Leonor K. Sullivan Blvd. today). It was removed in 1959 to allow Terminal Railroad's tracks to remain on the riverfront.they had been on an elevated trestle just in front of the Rock House since 1880. The site of the Rock House is buried under the steps, in the bluff that conceals the railroad tracks today.

City of St. Louis

Today the St. Louis Blues call downtown's Scottrade Center home, but many of you likely have fond memories of their former home—the St. Louis Arena. Opened in 1929 in St. Louis's Dogtown neighborhood, the Arena was known as the Checkerdome from 1977 to 1983 after the building and the team were purchased by Ralston Purina. The iconic St. Louis building was demolished after the Blues moved to their new home, the Kiel Center (now the Scottrade Center), in 1994.
