Bird Bath Donation

Thanks to Barbara Ward and her donation of the bird bath for Whitecliff. I’m sure the birds will appreciate a cool dip on a hot day.

If you happen to see that it needs water, please don’t be bashful about giving it a fill-up.

Hosted by Fundraising Brick

Engraved Brick Order Deadline: Ongoing

For additional information regarding our engraved brick campaign please contact
Eunice Lingle at or call 314 962 4258.


It’s been over 50 years since the original restoration of the Historic Thomas Sappington House and Gardens.  Although the plants are flourishing, the House and Garden Brickwork are showing their age.

The Sappington House Foundation and City of Crestwood are currently engaged in restoring the House and Gardens to their original Federal Period beauty.  We need your help!  It is a costly endeavor, but timely repairs done now will prevent further damage, and preserve this lovely historic site for years to come.

You can be a part of history and make a lasting mark in the community!  Purchase a brick engraved with your name or message. It will have a permanent place in the Garden.  The monies from this memorial brick fundraiser will be used in the restoration of the house and garden area.

Great brick ideas to make a mark in history and support Sappington House and Gardens

Your name / family
In memory or honor of a loved one
An encouraging message to the future

Shade – Trees and Native Plants

If your yard is filled with trees and lots of shade, you may have given up on gardening, but the Scott Woodbury video below shows how beautiful it can be with just a little maintenance.
