    Fascinating,
    Googled “Old Arnold, Mo. Photographs” and seen Frederitzi’s Hall.
    I was born in 1961 and have lived In Arnold my whole life.
    I can remember when my dad told me (the day after It happened), he said
    It was a big orange glow In the sky the night Frederitzi’s hall burned down.
    I think I was around 5 or 6 years old, which would of been 1966/1967.
    I live right by the Rock Community Ambulance house.
    I could not find any information on that, or what year it was when It burned.

    That guess of 1966/67 is about right. I think the only way to confirm that is to visit the Northwest Public Library on Hwy pp and 30. They have many of the old newspapers and there had to be a story written about such a famous landmark.
