Colonial and Colonialish Houses, Ste. Genevieve

Moving down to what is now South Main Street, we hit some of the oldest houses in Ste. Genevieve. There is the Bolduc House above. Early colonial houses had broad porches that wrapped around the whole structure, and unlike German or English log walls with horizontal beams, place the logs in the grounds vertically, as you can see in Cahokia.

Above is the backside of the Bolduc-LeMeilleur house. Below is the  Jean Baptiste Vallé House.

And below is Beauvais-Linden House, which is part of the French Colonial America non-profit.

Here is the same house from another angle.

I suspect this house had dormers originally, as well. You can see the First Presbyterian Church from yesterday on the right.
