The Field House Museum is a dynamic museum and historic site focused on the Field family. The historic house was once the residence of Roswell Field, a noted St. Louis attorney, and his son, writer Eugene Field. While living in the home, Field became the key lawyer on the landmark Dred Scott v. Sandford law suit. He formulated the legal strategy that propelled the civil rights case to federal court.
Designated as a National Historic Landmark, the home has an attached museum that houses extensive collections, such as a toy collection to honor Eugene Field's love of toys, and several traveling exhibits.
