The area was originally inhabited by the Hopewell Indians almost two millennia ago. In time the tribes were replaced by a section of the Sioux who lived near present day Indian Mounds Park. In the wake of the Louisiana Purchase, Zebulon Pike set up a fort covering a large area along the Mississippi, here.
The settlers that remained in the area once the fort was completed were French. With the settlement beginning to take shape, traders and missionaries descended on the area. Growth followed. In 1837, the US government pursued and succeeded in a treaty with the tribal Indians of the area resulting in the land across the Mississippi to come within the fold of the US Government's control.
Father Lucien Galtier arrived in 1841 with the intention to minister to the French in the area and soon a church followed. Father Galtier named it after St Paul. The church was built above Lambert's Landing.
