Experience St. Louis County as it was a century ago. Tour the 1850s Conway House, home of Dr. Frederick and Lavinia Bates and its period herb garden and outdoor kitchen. Also tour the circa 1848 log cabin of Ludwig and Salome Mertz, a dye and insect repellent garden, German vegetable garden, smokehouse, outhouse and woodshed and the Davis House, which originally was a two story log cabin with it's detached washhouse and smokehouse. On occasion, visitors may see a blacksmith at work in the Yokel barn. Guides in period dress will be available to answer questions.

Spanning a period from 1840 to 1910, the Historic Village represents a cross-section of architectural styles and building materials. All of the houses were moved into Faust Park from the surrounding area and saved from probable demolition.

At Faust Park in Chesterfield. Noon to 4 p.m. Free.
