The Ste. Genevieve Herald Wed., April 14, 2004 By Jean Feld Rissover Two of the last few properties bought out following major flooding in Ste. Genevieve have been purchased by private individuals and are being renovated. The properties were among four flood-prone buildings considered to be of historic significance that were purchased by the state in 1995. The state “mothballed” the properties, hoping they would eventually be bought by people who would renovate them. “We’re glad to see it happen,” said Sandy Koller, the city’s zoning administrator in charge of buyout properties. “It means two houses that have been sitting empty will be occupied soon.”Read More →

The Amoureux house was built ca. 1792 by Jean Baptiste St. Gemme Beauvais overlooking le grand champ, the agricultural fields of Ste. Genevieve.  Its upright cedar log walls are set directly in the earth, in the rare poteaux-en-terre method of construction.  Heavy, hewn timbers form the Norman truss which supports the steeply-pitched roof, reminiscent of French Canada.  Purchased by Benjamin Amoureux in 1852, the house is now part of the Felix Valle State Historic Site.  Seasonal opening, admission is charged.
