The Sappington House is tucked away on 2.5 acres with lush grounds and a small pond. The Federal style house is on the National Registry of Historic Places, built in 1808 and believed to be the first brick house in St. Louis County. The historic structure still stands on its original site and is surrounded by flower and herb beds just as it was 200 years ago. Meticulously restored and elegantly refurbished with antiques from prior to 1835, the museum gives a glimpse into how some lived in the wilderness in the area now known as Crestwood. https://historicsappingtonhouse.org/museumlibrary/
