About Cape Girardeau

Cape Girardeau is a city located in southeastern Missouri, along the Mississippi River. It was founded in 1793 by French and Spanish settlers, making it one of the oldest settlements west of the Mississippi River. The city's name comes from Jean Baptiste de Girardot, a French officer who established a trading post in the area.

Throughout its history, Cape Girardeau has been an important transportation hub. In the early 19th century, it served as a major port for steamboats, which transported goods and people along the Mississippi River. The city's location at the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers made it a strategic point for trade and commerce.

Today, Cape Girardeau continues to be a vital transportation center. It is served by several major highways, including Interstate 55 and U.S. Route 61, which connect the city to other parts of Missouri and neighboring states. The city also has a regional airport and is located near the Cape Girardeau Regional Port, which handles freight transportation along the Mississippi River.
