Natural Historic Site
Brush up on your French for a trip you’ll treasure without the need of a passport. Step back into history to a time when French colonists established houses on land ripe for vineyards. Enjoy today’s conveniences, like a car to get you there, while relishing an era when the city of Sainte Genevieve was the only town in Missouri. On just a tank of gas from St. Louis, shop antique stores, observe French Colonial architecture, unwind at wineries of the region, or enjoy a nature and hiking trail on a National Natural Landmark.
