Historic Sites

To preserve and protect the heritage of the community and make the past available to our present day citizens, the city owns and maintains two historic properties, Tappmeyer Homestead and Lake School House.

The City previously owned two historic cabins, Clester Cabin and Hackmann Cabin, which were removed and donated to St. Louis County Parks in 2022. The cabins will be relocated to Faust Park in 2023-2024, where they will be reassembled and restored for public display in the park’s historic village. 


Self-Guided Tours
Historic Tappmeyer Homestead is open for self-guided tours during the summer concerts at Millennium Park and every 2nd and 4th Sunday of June through August, 12:00–4:00P. 

Historic St. Louis Summer Tour
Tappmeyer Homestead is once again participating in the Historic St. Louis summer tour where 25 historic sites throughout the metropolitan area are open for tours. The house will welcome visitors Saturday, June 10, from 10:00A-4:00P.
