Text of marker:


This library was provided for in the will of Benjamin W. Lewis, whose fortune was made in tobacco, to the extent of $10,000.  The building of Italian Renaissance architecture was erected in 1866 at a cost of $26,000.00 through the benevolence of his widow, son and a brother.  This is the second old library in Missouri and the oldest building used exclusively for library purposes west of the Mississippi.
