Ensign Girardot's establishment of a trading post at Cape Rock put our river town on the map in the early 1700s. Volunteer Charlotte Slinkard at the Cape River Heritage Museum is traveling the country to research Cape Girardeau's earliest European history, and the story of Girardot's wife Therese quickly grabbed her attention. As the Cape River Heritage Museum prepares to open for the season this month, don't hesitate to stop by this former police and fire station to learn more about the early days of Cape Girardeau from the perspective of pioneering Therese Girardeau.
