Ecole du Soldat

Ecole du Soldat ("School of the Soldier") is a family-friendly living history event. Come to see one of the “10 best undiscovered small cities” in the United States, book your stay in one of Ste. Genevieve’s award-winning bed and breakfasts and explore the town as you learn about traditions of the “School of the Soldier.”

On Saturday, attend a public heritage auction of discovered 'desirables' – memorabilia, collectibles, 'accoutrements', utensils, and 'watch'a-may-call-its'. Ste. Genevieve has the greatest concentration of original French colonial buildings in North America and is the only surviving French colonial village in the United States. This will be a fully packed weekend of lectures and camaraderie with plenty of places to stay and see.
