Jean Baptiste Vallé House

Jean Baptiste Vallé (Sep. 25, 1760 - Aug. 3, 1849) was the son of Francois Vallé I, the original commandant of Ste. Genevieve. A socially historic home, it was the center of local politics when Jean Baptiste took over as commandant after his brother, Francois II. He married Marie 'Jeanne' Barbeau (1760 - 1842), the daughter of Jean Barbeau who constructed Fort de Chartres. The house was built in 1794, and Jean Baptiste lived there until his death. Lafayette stayed in this house when he visited Ste. Genevieve after the Louisiana Purchase. It is now a private residence, beautifully restored.
