The People of Missouri
Three historical cultures were important in the founding and development of Missouri; the French, Scots-Irish and Germans. Of course, St. Louis was founded by the French but they settled throughout the state. The Scots-Irish came from the Appalachian region and mainly settled in the beautiful Ozarks. The Germans mostly settled along the Missouri River, an area that reminded them of their homeland.
