ABOUT ST. CHARLES
Just west of St. Louis you’ll find Saint Charles, a river city with a unique historical perspective, beautiful sites, friendly people and a pace just a little slower than that of the big city. Founded as Les Petites Cotes (The Little Hills) by French Canadian fur trader Louis Blanchette, Saint Charles grew into a thriving riverfront trading center for a young America. Thousands passed through on their journeys westward, replenishing supplies before departing into new territory.
St. Charles is a source of historical encounter: the Lewis and Clark Rendezvous, Missouri’s First State Capitol, origin of the Boone’s Lick Trail and home to Daniel Boone. Experience the charm and beauty of a city that has been welcoming visitors since 1769 (information courtesy of www.historicstcharles.com).
