Historical Description

French merchant Pierre Laclède Liguest and his New Orleans-born stepson Auguste Chouteau founded Saint Louis in 1763 as a trading post. The actual founding of the city took place in 1764. After the French and Indian War (1754-1763), St. Louis was under Spanish control, but was returned - along with the rest of Louisiana - to France during the Napoleonic War.
