198 Merchant St, Ste Genevieve Missouri
Settled by French-Canadian habitants in the late 1740s and located amid Ste. Genevieves National Historic Landmark District, the Felix Vall House State Historic Site offers visitors a rare glimpse of Missouris French colonial past. The site features the Felix Vall House built in 1818 as an American-Federal style residence and mercantile store. Restored and furnished to reflect the 1830s, the home today interprets the American influence on the French community following the Louisiana Purchase. Just across the street is the Dr. Benjamin Shaw House. The earliest portion of this white frame building was constructed in 1819 by Jean Baptiste Bossier as a storehouse for his mercantile business. Today, the house provides interpretive space for the site. The 1792 Amoureux House features walls that are formed from hewn logs, set upright into an earthen trench in a style known as poteaux en terre, making it a rare architectural treasure.
