State Project:

Members of the Missouri State Society Children of the American Revolution can let the good times roll as they learn about Missouri’s French Colonial history and support the new heritage education classroom at the Felix Valle State Historic Site.

Settled by French-Canadian habitants in the late 1730’s, the village of Ste. Genevieve is the oldest town in Missouri. Ste. Genevieve has been inviting visitors to enjoy the charm of its narrow streets, shops, museums and historic homes for decades. Located amid Ste. Genevieve’s National Landmark Historic District, the Felix Vallé House State Historic Site offers visitors a rare glimpse of Missouri’s French colonial past.

Heritage education is very important to the site’s mission. A new educational classroom will allow site personnel to teach about the history of Missouri and Ste. Genevieve. While some needed materials have been donated, the Felix Valle Site is in the process of finishing and furnishing the classroom. Construction materials, chairs and supplies are needed.

Donors supporting the 2012-2013 State Presidents Project by giving $10 or more receive a Fleur de lis pin. The lapel pin in made from cast pewter, plated in gold and polished to a brilliant shine.

Opportunities are also available on fabulous themed items for $1 each or 6 for $5.
