Last month, St. Louis Public Radio reported on the discovery of the first physical evidence of the French Colonial settlers in St. Louis at the Poplar Street Bridge. In response, the Missouri History Museum wrote a post on its History Happens Here blog about works in their collection that demonstrate life in French Colonial St. Louis. The historic town of Ste. Genevieve, Mo. also offers opportunities to experience what life would have been like here during that time.
Cityscape host Steve Potter spoke with Anne Woodhouse, curator of domestic life at the Missouri History Museum and Sandra Cabot, director of the Welcome Center and Tourism Program in Ste. Genevieve to find out more.
Cityscape is produced by Mary Edwards and Alex Heuer, hosted by Steve Potter and funded in part by the the Arts and Education Council of Greater St. Louis, the Regional Arts Commission and the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
