The Saint Louis Zoo began it's journey in 1904 at the time of the Worlds Fair in celebration the Louisiana Purchase Exposition. The long and slow process to establish a zoological park began. Sure enough, local pride in the giant elliptical bird cage led to formation of a St. Louis Zoological Society in 1910. 77 acres in Forest Park was set aside by the City of St. Louis for a zoo and named a Zoological Board of Control in 1913. State legislation provided that "the zoo shall be forever free," which has kept the Zoo accessible to millions of visitors ever since....are rare trait for Zoos anywhere.
