Hello All! Greetings from the 17th annual Southeast Missouri State University Historic Preservation Field School. Once again, Dr. Steven Hoffman will be leading students on a hands-on intellectual adventure through the French Colonial architecture of Ste. Genevieve, Missouri. We kicked off the first day touring the Bauvais-Amoureux and Bolduc Houses, both beautifully preserved examples of vertical log construction. Famous local resident and former Site Administrator for the Felix Vallé State Historic Site, Jim Baker, will be accompanying us each day. His expertise and experience in historic preservation as well as his deep knowledge of Ste. Genevieve’s colorful past will be valuable learning tools for students. Donna Raush, a famous SEMO HP alumni and the current Site Administrator, will also be assisting us throughout the field school. Check back for exciting updates of our journey in the days to come!
