OLD TOWN FLORIS­SANT

Where St. Louis - - WHERE NOW -

French farm­ers first set­tled here in 1767, and the street names in the his­toric dis­trict (rue St. De­nis, rue St. Pierre, rue St. Fern­i­nand) re­flect that Gal­lic her­itage. Old St. Fer­di­nand’s Shrine, built in 1819-1820, is the old­est Catholic Church build­ing be­tween the Mis­sis­sippi River and the Rocky Moun­tains. The com­mer­cial dis­trict along rue St. Fran­cois in­cludes gift stores and restau­rants. Map 3-1E
