Historic Sappington House & Barn Restaurant

  • Attractions
  • South/Southwest

The Thomas Sappington House Museum, the Library of Americana and Decorative Arts, The Barn Restaurant, and the Loft Gift Shop The Thomas Sappington House Museum in Crestwood tucked away in a 2.5-acre park, featuring lush lawns and a small lake and fountain. A stunning and rare example of Federal architecture in Missouri, the historic structure, and flower and herb gardens appear as they did over 200 years ago. Built with slave labor, it is judged to be the oldest brick home in St. Louis County. Meticulously restored and elegantly refurbished, the site allows visitors to look back in time to see how the Sappington family lived in the early 1800s. Located near the Interstates 44 and 270 intersection, we are less than 20 minutes from the Gateway Arch. For added interest, Sappington House is adjacent to Grant’s Trail and Father Dickson Cemetery, a burial ground founded in 1903 for African-Americans.
