(Ste. Genevieve) Work on the United States newest National Park is not happening right now.
Many of the old, historic buildings in Ste. Genevieve will eventually become a national park but the town’s Mayor Paul Hassler says the government shutdown has thrown a wrench in things for now.
Ste. Genevieve National Historic Park will feature much of the historic town which was established in the mid-1700s.
Ste. Genevieve was the first settlement on the west bank of the Mississippi River and is still the only surviving French Colonial village in the United States.
