The Eugene Field House & St. Louis Toy Museum was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2007. It was opened December 18, 1936 as the first historic house museum in St. Louis. The Museum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has also been named a City of St. Louis Landmark.

This house was Eugene's boyhood home, and during their residence here his father Roswell M. Field served as the Attorney who took Dred Scott's freedom suit into the Federal Courts, leading to the infamous Supreme Court decision in Scott v. Sandford.

The House is owned and operated as a museum by the Eugene Field House Foundation, a charitable organization.
