An 18th century French river town, Ste Genevieve has retained much of the atmosphere of its missionary, fur trading, mining, and military eras. It was the principal seat of government during the Spanish control of the western Louisiana territory, but declined after the Louisiana Purchase and the emergence of Saint Louis as the area's major port and commercial center. - NPS
