Activities

Park Information

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.

As temperatures rise in the spring, it’s important to “be bear aware”. The American black bear population is increasing in Missouri and you may be fortunate enough to see one in their natural setting. Spring is the time when black bears emerge from their dens in search of food following the deep sleep of winter’s hibernation. The bear will forage for fruits, nuts, berries and other foods in the early spring. Their feeding habits will increase as food becomes more plentiful. Please remember that it’s important not to approach any wildlife you may see in our parks.
