Eugene Field House and St. Louis Toy Museum is at 634 S. Broadway. Antique and collectible toys are displayed at the birthplace and childhood home of children's poet Eugene Field, whose poems included “Little Boy Blue” and “Wynken, Blynken and Nod.” The 1845 house was owned by Eugene's father, Roswell Martin Field, the attorney who represented Dred Scott in his 1853 lawsuit for freedom.
