H.R.2888 – Ste. Genevieve National Historical Park Establishment Act


H.R. 2888 establishes the Ste. Genevieve National Historic Site in the State of Missouri.

The bill authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to acquire 13 acres located within the boundary of the Historical Park or any nationally significant property identified in the special resource within the Historic District by donation, purchase with donated or appropriated funds, or exchange.

Ste. Genevieve is one of the oldest National Historic Landmark districts in the country. When a portion of the district was initially designated as such in 1960, it was recognized for the unique concentration of French vertical log architecture–the largest extant collection of this architecture in North America. The most notable feature of French vernacular log architecture is the use of logs vertically, rather than horizontally, as seen in buildings in the frontier settlements of people of other ethnic European extractions.
