2016 Joint Conference
September 29 – October 2, 2016
Ste. Genevieve, Missouri
Dubourg Centre on the square
You won’t want to miss this conference. The beautifully renovated DuBourg Centre (formerly the Rozier Store) is conveniently located in the middle of Historic Ste. Genevieve. Restaurants and most of the historic homes are within walking distance of the DuBourg Centre. All Saturday events will take place here. Plenty of parking will be available adjacent to the building.
We are thrilled this year to be partnering with the Foundation for Restoration of Ste. Genevieve. The Foundation is heavily involved in the preservation of historic Ste. Genevieve. Please visit their website, www.historicstegen.org, to learn about all of their projects and activities.
The conference hotel is the Microtel Inn and Suites by Wyndham, located at the entrance to Ste. Genevieve at 21958 Highway 32. A block of 25 rooms is being held for conference registrants, and the hotel is now taking reservations. There are many bed and breakfasts, most of which are located in the heart of the historic district at slightly higher prices. Just west of Ste. Genevieve are the wineries. Several of them offer very nice lodging. There are also accommodations available in Perryville, MO, about 30 miles south of Ste. Genevieve on I-55. About 30 minutes west of Ste. Genevieve on Highway 32 is Farmington, MO, where more accommodations are available. Please visit the website www.visitstegen.com where a complete listing of local accommodations is available.
Conference planners from both the Foundation for Restoration and the Center for French Colonial Studies are already hard at work to ensure that everyone has a memorable visit to this one-of-a-kind historic village which has more vertical log houses than anywhere in North America. You will want to see these historic homes, the Church of Ste. Genevieve, and Memorial Cemetery, the final resting place of these intrepid French and Indian men, women, and children. You will want to walk the streets and soak up the ambiance of this very special ville.
Please check back again for more details as they become available.
The Annual Meeting for 2017 will be held in Mobile, Alabama.
