Ste. Genevieve Historic District is a historic district in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri.

Declared a National Historic Landmark in 1960,[2][3] the Ste. Genevieve National Historic Landmark District includes many major structures of historic significance. These include the Beauvais-Amoureux House, the Felix Vallé House State Historic Site, La Maison de Guibourd, the Delassus-Kern House, the Louis Bolduc House (listed separately as a National Historic Landmark) and many others.

In 2002, a boundary increase was added, roughly bounded by Main St. and St. Mary's Rd., Roberts, 7th, and Seraphin Sts. in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri. The boundary increase was added to the National Register of Historic Places, but not to the National Historic Landmark.
