Several French Communities were built along the west banks of Mississippi River in Illinois country, and were well formed by the mid 1700s. Although France ceded this area to Spain after the French and Indian War, these towns managed to retain their French character and language. Although flood waters forced the town to higher ground in 1785, Ste. Genevieve continued to prosper and grow, propelled by the movement of American settlers into the newly acquired Louisiana Purchase.
