The Felix Vallé State Historic Site in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, was originally built in about 1818 by Jacob Phillipson, a Jewish merchant from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was the home of Felix Vallé and Odile Pratte-Vallé. The house is a Federal style limestone building that features an authentically stocked mercantile store representing the historic trading firm of Menard & Vallé. Original mantels and interior trim with early Empire furnishings complete the family living quarters. An outdoor staircase leads to the second floor bedrooms. The garden area features original brick and frame outbuildings.
