Twist and Shout! Two Fundraisers for Two Historic Sappington Houses


The Thomas Sappington House is judged to be St. Louis County’s oldest brick home. Thus, they have musical roots in all eras including classic rock; they are on Route 66 after all. Sappington House is set to connect good times and memories for two outdoor concerts this summer. Fundraising will support renovation of the brick house and the relocation of another Sappington family house – this time a log cabin!

On Saturday, June 3, 2023, from 5 to 8 pm, the Ticket to the Beatles tribute band will reprise their outstanding Sappington House concert from 2021.

On Friday, June 9, 2023, from 5 to 8 pm, the SappingTones, winner of the 2022 Battle of the Rock Band competition, will again show why they are on the top of the rock band heap.

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.

For both concerts, the gate will open at 4 pm, and tickets are $20 for adults and free for children under 12. There will be 50/50 chances and mystery gift card boxes for fun and also to boost fundraising efforts to benefit Historic Sappington House in Crestwood. The home was built over 210 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. All of the funds received from the two outdoor concerts will go towards the Sappington House and the upcoming log cabin to prepare the log structure to provide expanded educational, exhibit and event spaces.
