Saint Charles is a small city, situated along the Missouri River, just west of St Louis, along I-70. St Charles County is one of the fastest growing counties, in the country. It is also one of our favorite places to visit.
Exit I-70 at 5th Street. Follow the markers to Booneslick and turn right to find your way to Historic Saint Charles. Entering South Main Street is like stepping into another time. We plan to visit South Main, this weekend, during Fete des Petite Cotes (Festival of the Little Hills). More about this event in a future post.
Last weekend we visited North Main Street, Historic Downtown Saint Charles. After visiting Framations Gallery we drove to Jefferson Street for photos of the old St Charles County Courthouse.
We could not leave the area without a drive along Jefferson Street. The architecture, of this historic Saint Charles street, represents late 18th century thru early 20th century.
Many of the homes have markers with information concerning the structure. We want to go back during Autumn, for a walk along this street.
The following photos are a small sampling of the architecture.
