#179: Concordia Seminary

 I'm not gonna lie, this was a bit challenging to find, driving through Clayton. But I found it :) I will warn you, if you're taking the streets and not the road, you will be driving 10 mph on those watched streets. The cake is not hard to find though, once you get to the site. Just drive through the area and park in 'visitors' on the left, and it should be easy to see on the plaza.

  • Concordia Seminary is the second oldest Lutheran seminary in the United States (the oldest is in Gettysburg, PA, dedicated in 1826). 
  • Founded in 1839, it is celebrating its 175 anniversary in 2014.
  • It was originally located in Perry County, MO (south of St. Louis), but was moved to St. Louis/Clayton in 1849.
  • Offers an array of advanced master degree programs, such as the Master of Divinity.
  • A statue of Martin Luther is located on the site, which is similar to the one in Worms, Germany.
  • The radio station KFUO-AM 850 operates on the campus with religious programming.
