The Grand Staircase has been completed. Join us for celebration and dedication on May 13, 2016, 11:30 a.m. 400 S. Main Street in Poplar Bluff, Missouri. We are so happy to announce the completion of this project which began its journey to completion in March 2010 when a few dedicated citizens of Poplar Bluff begin to meet monthly and formulate plans and raise funds to get the project completed.  Help was solicited through a grant received from Missouri Department of Transportation but the citizens, civic organizations, and businesses gave a huge support to the project contributing in excess of $115,000.   Smith & Co were the engineers for the design and construction phases.  Concrete Strategies of St. Louis, Missouri were the contractors who constructed the new Grand Staircase.   Project was finished in early December 2015 and is now open to the public again. This is a beautiful replica of the original Grand Staircase which was constructed in 1910 and has been on the National Historic Register. Beautiful tourist site — put it on your itinerary as you travel through Southeast Missouri.

Be sure to thank those you come in contact with for the efforts put forth by the Community and former Poplar Bluffians to get this project completed.

    Congratulations! We’ve been following your project for some time as the balusters and balustrades of your staircase echo the architectural style of the Grand Staircase at Eastern Oregon University in La Grande, Oregon that we are working to save. Great work!
