A little about Ste. Genevieve

Unlike any other community in the United States, Ste. Genevieve was settled by the French in the 1740's. It maintains that French flavor today in its architecture, language and culture.

The history of Ste. Genevieve

Established on the west bank of the Mississippi River, the village of Ste. Genevieve was settled in the late 1740s about two miles south of its present location. The village was one of several important French communities forming a region known as the Illinois Country, part of the vast territory held by France in North America at the time. Many of Ste. Genevieve's earliest residents were French Canadian inhabitants who farmed the rich, alluvial soil adjacent to the village. They also produced salt and mined lead from nearby sources.
