Bevo Mill is a well known St. Louis landmark.
Bevo Mill was the brain child of August A. Busch, Sr. who traveled Europe with his architects viewing examples of Flemish architectural styles to find the design for this resturant. In 1915 he chose a site at the intersection of Gravois Road and Morganford south of downtown St. Louis Missouri because it was half way between the Anheuser Busch Brewery and his home at Grants Farm. The German cuisine restaurant was finished in 1916 at a total cost of $300,000 which was an unheard of cost in those days.
It has been through a few owners and was basically abandoned for a while until 2009 when the new owners spent $500,00 to refurbish, clean, restore and bring it up to current restaurant standards. Bevo Mill is not open as a restaurant now, only for holiday parties, rehearsal dinners, wedding receptions, meetings and other corporate events.

I have tried to photo this entire location before but without the wide angle lens I could never get all of this building in one image in the urban area.
