Historic Florissant, Inc.

is creating A Library & Archives of Florissant's History




per month


Historic Florissant, Inc.(HFI) has established one of the finest collections of archival materials from the Florissant Valley and the other nearby communities in North St. Louis County. The materials have been collected over the last 40 years by Rosemary Davison and many other members of the organization. The archives include photographs, maps, reference books, documents and family histories.
When you contact or visit us you can get help from members of HFI. They are incredibly knowledgeable of Florissant and North County history. HFI typically does not charge for services unless members spend a number of hours conducting research and donations offered are always appreciated.  HFI has several books for sale including books authored by Rosemary Davison and Gretchen Crank;  two past presidents of the organization.
Photos and printed matter are available for a nominal cost and are available in electronic formats which may be sent by email anywhere in the world.
HFI has a Facebook page where news and announcements are posted as well as historical photos and stories. The page has over 1,400 followers.
HFI hosts an annual house tour on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. Volunteers decorate and open their homes for Christmas and invite 300 to 400 visitors inside. Light refreshments are served at several locations.
It is our hope to find patrons who will support the work and history being maintained by the organization, this, along with donations are our only source of income. If we can raise more than the minimum needed to maintain the organization's monthly costs for the house and office materials, we can continue our work protecting and preserving historic structures and the rich history of Florissant. 
$36 of $700 per month
Monthly need to cover expenses of maintaining the Gittemeier house, utilities, insurance, taxes, etc.  No money goes to staff because everyone is a volunteer.
