575.JPG.jpg Bonjour mes amis!! Welcome to the Cape Girardeau District of 1803!    The Red House Interpretive Center is located just off Main Street in historic downtown Cape Girardeau , Missouri. The Center commemorates the life of community founder French-Canadian, Louis Lorimier, as well as the visit of Meriwether Lewis and William Clark in November, 1803. The Interpretive Center houses an early 1800's exhibit that reflects the lives of the early settlers of the old Cape Girardeau district. In addition, a rendering of Lorimier's Trading Post displays authentic items that would have been sold at the turn of the 19th century.

Admission is free to the public on Saturdays and special events (however donations are always welcome)! Open May through October, Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. or by appointment. For more information visit www.visitcape.com or to schedule a group tour, contact the Cape Girardeau Convention & Visitors Bureau at 573-335-1631 or the Cape Girardeau Parks and Recreation Department Office at (573) 339-6340.

Visit Lorimier's Trading Post

In 1803 Lorimier's Trading Post was the largest and most well known trading post between St. Louis and Memphis. Traders, Native Americans and local residents came to the post to either buy or trade for needed goods. On November 23, 1803, Lewis Merriwether and members of his expedition stopped by Lorimier's trading post for supplies and to visit with Lorimier and his family.
