All About The Lovely Town Of Florissant

<p>The town's official page will tell you everything you will need to know while moving-in to your new apartment in Florissant. It was still a predominately French-speaking area until the turn of the 20th Century. Not so much anymore, but it's still a big part of the place's heritage. Many of the streets in the old part of the time still have French names! Have a look at the former churches, log cabins, old city hall, the old marketplace and the Imperial Crown Pet Cemetery! (spooky...just off N. Highway 67) If you check the cities website you'll find information about the historic old Colonial homes, and the Fall Festival, the ice rink and the indoor pool.</p>
