The Jean-Baptiste Valle House is serving as the headquarters for the Ste. Genevieve National Historical Park, which was established on Friday, October 30.

U.S. Senator Roy Blunt and U.S. Representative Jason Smith on Friday [October 30] announced that U.S. Secretary of the Interior David L. Bernhardt has completed the final step to formally establish the Ste. Genevieve National Historical Park.

Blunt and Smith led the legislation, which was signed into law in March 2018, to establish the Ste. Genevieve National Historical Park and designate it as a unit of the National Park System.

This is the first National Historical Park to be established in Missouri.
