The death of Michael Brown on Aug. 9th in Ferguson, Missouri immediately prompted a reaction from the community which evolved into a series of protests that lasted more than 100 days.

A memorial site was created on the street where Brown was shot by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. As people visited the site to mourn the loss of Brown and reflect on the events that led to his death, community members brought candles, posters, flowers and stuffed animals, along with various other items.

In the three months since Brown's death, the memorial site has increasingly grown as more members of the community stop by and add items to the collection.

The site has been captured in numerous photos during various times. Here are some of those photos, which have been gathered in consecutive order to portray the evolution of Brown's steadily-growing memorial site:
