Overview

Travel back to Missouri’s early French roots at Felix Vallé House State Historic Site. The American-Federal style Valle house was built in 1818 and today is furnished in the style of the 1830s with a host of artifacts that show the American influence on the French community of Ste. Genevieve after the Louisiana Purchase. The Bauvais-Amoureux House, built in 1792, is one of several other historic homes in the site, nestled within historic Ste. Genevieve.

The Mo state parks people do the tours at the house and are full of good information. It is only partially air conditioned so be prepared if it is hot. It is a long tour for a very small house (30 minutes).

This is a great historic site to visit. I took my oldest daughter who got a little creeped out. She said she could feel spirits there. It was a fun visit.

The Felux Valle house illustrates both a home and mercantile/general store, so you get two snapshots of live in New France. The state of Missouri tour guide was well versed and answered all questions. After touring the two floors of the Felix-Valle house we walked...More

The guide told us about the families who lived here. Part of the building was a store where residents of the town could order most anything. They took cash, credit or trade goods.
