The Creole Colonial Corridor

As a gift to St. Louis for her 250th birthday, the group “Les Amis,” a French heritage preservationist organization, has placed French street signs along the “Creole Colonial Corridor” downtown near the riverfront. I tried to find as many of these sings as possible, although I’m still not entirely sure how many there are in total (it appears one street may have two different French names, but I’m not sure, and never found the second one). Seven unique street names is pretty good, though, so I’m happy even if I didn’t find the last one.

I also located a few signs detailing the history of the streets. I don’t know where the rest of those signs are, but it was interesting to get another glimpse into the history of St. Louis this anniversary year!
