The Guibourd-Vallé House was constructed for Jacques Guibourd in 1806 in the “poteaux-sur-sole” style with vertical, hand-hewn log walls and a double-pitched roof. This important National Register site is the only historic house in Ste. Geneviève where visitors can go into the attic to view and study up close the Norman truss architecture employed at the time.

The house is furnished with elegant French Antiques.  The museum is owned and operated by the Foundation for Restoration of Ste. Genevieve as a memorial to its donor and former resident, Jules Felix Vallé.

Admission is adults $8, students $5 and a family $20, groups of 10 or more $5, students $3.  Tours are led by costumed guides.
