Frenchtown is a historic neighborhood and business district on the northeastern edge of St. Charles, Missouri. The Frenchtown Community includes the area recognized by the National Register of Historic Places and surrounding historic and geographic overlays as recognized by the City of St. Charles, MO. The generally accepted comprised area is: North to Tecumseh Street, South to Clark Street, West to Fifth Street, and East to the Missouri River. It features an up-and-coming business 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 to Frenchtown!


This association is a non-profit organization dedicated to the revitalization, preservation, growth, and creation of a sense of community in the Frenchtown area.
