CRESTWOOD SAPPINGTON HOUSE COMPLEX
Bond Architects, partnered with Strata Architecture + Preservation and Planning Design Studio, developed a comprehensive master plan for the City of Crestwood’s Sappington Park Complex. The Park is the home of the Thomas J. Sappington House Museum, built in 1808 and thought to be the oldest surviving brick structure still in existence in St. Louis County. The home was listed on the National Register for Historic Places in 1974. Also on site is the Library of Americana, the Barn Restaurant, a Caretaker’s Cottage, Shed and Pond. The Master Plan includes strategies for maintaining the site’s relevancy and increasing visitors for the next 15 years. Improvements include an addition of an outdoor plaza and storage shed, expansion of the Library of Americana, a new gift shop/Welcome Center, improved pedestrian connection to Grant’s Trail and an expansion of the Barn Restaurant.
