Travel back to Missouri’s early French roots at Felix Vallé House State Historic Site. The American-Federal style Vallé 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. Geneviève after the Louisiana Purchase.

This historic site was the home of one of Ste. Geneviève’s premier colonial families, Felix and Odile Pratte Vallé. The house features the family’s living quarters displaying beautiful early Empire furnishings with fully restored, original mantels and interior trim. An outside staircase on the back porch leads to fully furnished, second-floor bedrooms. The charming garden features original brick and frame outbuildings. Special Saturday activities are offered seasonally.

Admission includes guided tours. Meet your guide in the gift shop located across the street. Tours are offered at 10:00 a.m. 11:00 a.m. 1:00 p.m. 2:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.
