The Amoreaux House, sometimes called the Bauvais-Amoureux House, is in Ste. Geneviève, Missouri. It was built in in 1793 by Benjamin Amoureaux, who immigrated to the United States from France.

It is currently operated as a museum by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources. It is one of three surviving poteaux-en-terre buildings. The others are the Bequet-Ribault House and the Vital St. Gemme Beauvais House I (20 S. Main Street).
