The Field House Museum is a dynamic museum and historic site focused on the Field family. The historic house was once the home of Roswell Field, noted St. Louis attorney, and the birthplace of his son, Eugene Field, the “Children’s Poet.” While living in the home, Roswell Field became the key attorney in the Dred & Harriet Scott Freedom Suit when he formulated the legal strategy that propelled the case to federal court, thus changing the course of American history. The home was initially saved for Eugene due to the popularity of his poems such as “Wynken, Blynken, and Nod,” which were taught in schools across the nation. The house contains many of the family’s original furnishings and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2007. In 2016, an attached museum expansion was added featuring rotating exhibits and the Eugene Field Library.
