Formerly known as Mechanics Square, this area became known as Monument Square in the 1870's with the construction of the Civil War Monument. It took on a distinctive new look in the 1920's with the construction of several important buildings including the Stadium Theatre Building and the Union St. Jean-Baptiste Building.
