The Thomas Sappington House is judged to be St. Louis County’s oldest brick home, at 1015 S. Sappington Road 63126, thus we have musical roots in all eras including classic rock and Motown; we are on Route 66 after all! We invite you to join us, connecting good times and memories for three outdoor concerts this fall. Fundraising will support renovation of the brick house and the relocation of another Sappington family house – this time a LOG cabin!
On Friday, September 8, 2023 from 6 to 9 pm, Nostalgia, four Motown smooth operators, will croon soul and pop sounds.
And on Saturday, September 30, 2023 from 5 to 8 pm, Rock Opera will reprise their outstanding Sappington House concert in 2022!
Then on Saturday, October 14, 2023 from 4 to 7 pm, Fix Newton, seven performers, will entertain us with classic rock anthems.
For the three concerts, the gate will open one hour before showtime, and tickets are $20 for adults and free for children under 12. There will be 50/50 chances and mystery gift card boxes for sale to boost fundraising efforts to benefit Historic Sappington House in Crestwood. The home was built over 215 years ago with clay bricks produced onsite by pioneer Thomas Sappington. Open to the public as a museum since its restoration in 1966, “this fine old house” is in need of extensive repairs.
However, that is only the start! Historic Sappington House Park hopes to soon feature TWO houses – Thomas’ and cousin Joseph Sappington’s LOG house built in 1816! We must push our fundraising to a gallop because not only do we need to prepare the log structure to provide expanded educational, exhibit and event spaces, we must first move it to the Park from five miles away!
Bring your own lawn chairs, food and drink (no glass containers). Parking is available across the street at Crestwood Elementary School and south of the pond in the Reco Avenue overflow lot.
