Eugene Field House and Saint Louis Toy Museum, Saint Louis

The Eugene Field House and St. Louis Toy Museum is the place of birth of renowned American writer, Eugene Field. On display here are personal belongings of the writer and his father, Roswell Field. The latter served as an attorney for the Scott slave couple in 1853 when they appealed to the federal court for their freedom. The refusal of the United States Supreme Court to treat Dred Scott and his wife, Harriet, as citizens is believed by many to be a factor that precipitated the American Civil War.

Among other artifacts presented at the Field House & Museum are the restored original furniture, photographs, and a papercraft exhibition. The museum also contains a vast collection of toys and dolls with the oldest one dating back to 1790.

Operation Hours: Wednesday - Saturday: 10 am - 4 pm; Sunday: 12 pm - 4 pm.
