This kiosk-shaped fountain made out of wood and stone is called a sebilj, and is located in the Bevo Mills district of South St. Louis. The monument honors the Bosnian community of St. Louis, which numbers upwards of 70,000, making it the largest concentration of Bosnians outside of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Literally across the street is the Bevo Mill, a German style windmill constructed by August A. Busch Sr. in 1916.

I was first introduced to this example of the cultural diversity found in St. Louis while on a tour with my Mission Shift class. Mission Shift Institute “equips Christians to build and lead cross-cultural ministries.” I’m excited to share with you what I learn!
