Green Tree Tavern is the oldest building that is still standing in Ste. Genevieve. Built in 1790, the home has also served as a tavern, an inn, a tobacco shop, and a Masonic Lodge. Though it is the oldest house in town, Green Tree Tavern is the newest addition to Ste. Genevieve National Historical Park. It is also one of the few where you can clearly see the vertical logs that make up the structure.

The grounds of Green Tree Tavern are open year round. The interior is open during scheduled ranger programs.

Free ranger-guided tours are offered daily, depending on staffing and weather. Tours are limited to 15 individuals and free tickets are required. Tour tickets are available at the Welcome Center on a first-come-first serve basis. See our calendar for upcoming tours and programs. 

Advanced reservations are always required for groups of 15 or more. Group reservations can be made by email or by calling 573-880-7189.
