Gosh, that seems like one heckuva commute, although the traffic along I-55 can't be anywhere near as bad as southbound Highway 101 through California's Marin County and into San Francisco on a weekday morning. K-SHE is the foremost authority when it comes to things Ste. Genevieve, though.

What about commuting from Pevely? Or maybe as far south as Herculaneum or Festus? If the OP could carpool from there, that could work perhaps.

We talked briefly about Ste. Genevieve in our history class today. It used to be a very important French city. It's Ste. with an "e" because Genevieve was a female Saint. In the French, the female saint is "Sainte".

I'm sure kshegirl knew that, but just a bit of info for the rest of you.

Boeing is up there by Lambert right?
Just browsing Google Maps, there appears to be some rural areas north of Hazelwood. I'm not sure if any of it is for sale. Do you want a small town, or actually like middle of nowhere? Of course that land could be owned by the airport. I wouldn't get to close to the airport, or in 20 years they might make you move out to build a runway they never actually use (see Carrollton).

what else did they have to say about my hometown? Would love to hear what they are teaching about it in school.

Basically they were filming in the home of a rich Frenchman who lived there. And they were talking about Ste. Genevieve's importance in trading. I forget what else they said. But they spent a few minutes filming from Ste. Genevieve. The film was an old series on television with Alistair Cook from the 70s. I think this was the first episode.

was it the one where they followed a girl in period costume walking into, or out of the house? If it was, that was me, no kidding!

No. The Host Alistair Cook was just walking through the Old French house, talking about the city.

This is the series:

The episode: The New Found Land had the Ste. Genevieve part.

Best advice I've seen. I didn't realize how many options the OP would have up there.

Ye, I think it's just south of the airport. I'm just looking for enough space for my 2 horses and 3 large dogs. So would I find more hills and trees and less flatness of the land if I go South?

Probably. The Ozarks are to the southwest of St. Louis, but I'm not sure how far southwest.
