Cast Stone

Overview

This often-overlooked material was successfully developed in St. Louis as an alternative to natural stone. Largely the work of Algonite Stone Manufacturing Company, algonite was used in the construction of many important buildings locally and shipped throughout the south and the west. Featured examples include a complete façade from Gaslight Square in St. Louis and four monumental 23-foot columns from a commercial building.
