Welcome to Historic Frenchtown Association!

Frenchtown is a historic neighborhood and business district on the northeastern edge of St. Charles, Missouri. It features an up-and-coming antiques and art district, a treasure trove of French-colonial-style architecture, and a vibrant small-town feeling. We love our neighborhood! Whether you’re here to search for vintage goods and local handcrafted art, to stroll through a neighborhood in search of beautifully-preserved 19th-century houses, to play and picnic at one of the nearby parks, or to connect with neighbors at a meeting or potluck (see our Events page)— welcome!
