In their own words, citizens of Valmeyer tell its story. From the first days of settlement as an idyllic village nestled against the bluffs in the beautiful Mississippi River Valley in Southern Illinois, to the dramatic events that threatened it’s very existence, to it’s rebirth on higher ground, this documentary is about Valmeyer.
But it’s about much more. It’s a story of community and neighbours helping neighbours. It’s a story about perseverance and the strength to never give up. It’s a story about resiliency and the will to rebuild and move forward. But, mostly it’s about the heartbeat that drives small towns across this great nation. Valmeyer is about people.
