St. Louis (KSDK) -- A group of boilermakers who built the Gateway Arch is in St. Louis to see their work first hand.

For some, it was the first time they have seen it in person.  One boilermaker told NewsChannel 5's Dana Dean he thought the Arch was "great."

The men worked in the Warren, Pennsylvania steel fabrication plant.  They created wedge-shaped carbon steel/stainless steel sections that would form the Arch.

The Arch was built in 1965 and stands 630 feet tall. 

The men will take a tour of the Arch and museum Thursday.
