Urban Exploration: Renowned East St. Louis Architecture Demolished – Murphy Building, Urban Decay

I saw that the Murphy building in downtown East St. Louis was slated for demolition this month. I was pretty bummed to find out it was nearly all demolished once I got there today, but next door is a magnificent, beautiful piece of wonderful architecture. The Majestic Theater still holds onto its charm and beautiful workmanship. Let’s hope that the people and the government in East St. Louis will clean up their act and quit neglecting the historic landmarks they have.
