French Explorers: Early St. Louis History

Friday, July 8, 2011 @ 10:00 AM-12:01 PM

Featured Speaker: Jim Jordan, Senior Coordinator Continuing Education, University of Missouri – St. Louis

Immerse yourself in a time of French explorers in the wild land that would become St. Louis. Experience an interpretive lecture about Marquette and Joliet and the lifestyle of these explorers. How did they avoid the evil Manitou that inhabited the Mississippi River in Missouri? Why was St Louis so important in the early fur trade? Which countries had political jurisdiction over St Louis? Come and discover our rich French and fur trade connections through stories and song along with a Mercantile Library docent program that examines the fur trading post that developed into St. Louis.
