Community On the Mississippi

Established by 1750, Ste. Geneviève was the first permanent European settlement in Missouri. Early French Canadian settlers were drawn here by the rich agricultural land known as Le Grand Champ (the Big Field).  After the flood of 1785, the town relocated to its present location on higher ground approximately three miles to the northwest of its original site.
