What's Past is Prologue: A House Brimming with Stories

When: Aug. 18-Oct. 31, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. 2017

Built more than 160 years ago, the Field House was once part of a series of row houses, a get-away from the noise and smoke of the small metropolis of St. Louis. The embodiment of the past and present, the brick house is the centerpiece of a series of dynamic stories that include attorney Roswell Field, who became the advocate in Dred and Harriet Scott’s quest for freedom, poet Eugene Field, whose verses captivated boys and girls across the country, and the school children whose pennies helped save the house from the wrecking ball.

Price: Adults: $10.00, Children 7-16: $5.00
