Saint Louis

 

Saint Louis was founded by the French in the 18th century. It was a major inland port, supply center and the starting point for early explorers and settlers to the western United States in the 19th century. The city is strategically located near the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers. Today, St. Louis is the second largest city in the state of Missouri, after Kansas City.
