Sappington, Missouri, in South St. Louis County, is a city filled with large, stately homes, friendly neighbors, and convenient location.
Sappington is home to the Sappington Farmer’s Market, owned by a Missouri Cooperative of small family farmers and rural entrepreneurs, sells international, ethnic and locally grown specialty foods and produce, and hosts frequent sales and other events.
Hop on your bike for a ride down the newly renovated Grant’s Trail, an eight-mile long pathway that takes you past several landmarks, including the oldest brick home in St. Louis County, the historic Sappington House, which was built in 1808.
More than 24 million guests have visited Grant’s Farm, a St. Louis institution for multiple generations and 50 years – and it’s no wonder, considering this free attraction has been rated as one of the top ten attractions in the country. Take a tram ride past the 1,000+ buffalo, deer, ostriches and more, and then stop to feed the goats and watch the elephant show before walking to the Bauernhof, a 19th century German farmstead, where visitors can dine on authentic German fare, and adults are treated to a free beer.
Residents of Sappington live just a stone’s throw from Laumeier Sculpture Park, the 105-acre outdoor museum that combines nature with contemporary sculpture to inspire creative thinking. Just down the road is Kirkwood’s picturesque Powder Valley Conservation Nature Center, where you can hike through 112 acres of forest, rocky slopes, towering trees, and a surreal calm.
The Lindbergh School District, a multi-year recipient of the Missouri Department of Education’s “Distinction in Performance” honors, serves Sappington’ K-12 students.
Sappington shoppers love to shop at the recently renovated South County Center, where retail giants Macy’s, Borders, Sears and Dillards – among others – mean quality retail therapy.
