- The first historic museum in St. Louis and the boyhood home of Eugene Field, The Eugene Field House & St. Louis Toy Museum packs a historical punch. Eugene's father Roswell M. Field was the attorney who defended Dred Scott in that groundbreaking fight for Scott's freedom. The relics found in the Field home are reminiscent of a time when joys and pains marked the plight of the Midwest. The toy museum consists of dolls and toys from the Field collection as well as toys that date back as far as 1790. Admission is only USD5 (USD1 for children under 11 and children under 3 are free), and all the proceeds go towards the upkeep and conservation of this historic landmark. -Cathryn D. Blue
