    The Artists Guild’s building was constructed as the town’s museum and library in 1935, to celebrate Ste. Genevieve’s bicentennial. The “museum” inscription above the main entrance is original, as you can see by the stone and font used. Also, that’s why it is described as being in the Norman Revival style, to somewhat match historic French colonial buildings. The old jail is on the south side of the courthouse. The building you labeled as the old sheriff’s office was originally used as an office building for the county. I am not sure whether it originally was the sheriff’s office or more likely something such as the county clerk’s office.
