Frank Lloyd Wright, the most famous American architect, designed a Usonian Kirkwood home for Russell and Ruth Kraus. Tour this famous home, as well as the historic Victorian Mudd’s Grove home in Kirkwood. Enjoy lunch at the Sappington Barn Restaurant in Crestwood. Browse their gift shop afterward. Tour the oldest brick house in St. Louis County: the 1808 Sappington House. Built by Thomas Sappington for his bride, the house was erected by slaves, with bricks made on-site. Visit the historic Hawken House in Webster Groves. Built in 1857, this Federal-style home was the first in Missouri to receive federal funds for restoration.
