Asked in Louisiana
Who decided to stay and settle in this state Louisiana?
The first European explorers to visit Louisiana came in 1528 when a Spanish expedition led by Panfilo de Narvaes located the mouth of the Mississippi River. The first permanent settlement, Fort Maurepas (at what is now Ocean Springs, Mississippi, near Biloxi), was founded by Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville, a French military officer from Canada, in 1699. By then the French had also built a small fort at the mouth of the Mississippi at a settlement they named La Balise (or La Balize), "seamark" in French.
From what country did the first European explorers leave to come to Missouri?
Asked in Catholicism, Colonial America
What was the First Catholic settlement in the US?
St. Augustine, Florida was the first European(i.e. Spanish) settlement in what later became the US. I do not know you call it a Catholic settlement or even if they built a church, but Catholicism was the state religion of Spain at that time. Baltimore, Maryland is where most Catholics from England lived- I think it was the first English settlement with a Catholic church.

The first European to discover the area now called Connecticut was Dutch trader Adriaen Block, who explored from New Amsterdam (New York) up the Connecticut River. He founded the first European settlement in Connecticut, a trading post just north of where modern-day Hartford is located. Thomas Hooker did not discover Connecticut, but he was the first European to establish a permanent settlement there, founding the town of Hartford in 1636.
