The Eugene Field House, in conjunction with the beginning of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, has an entire room exhibit named "A Room Divided" which depicts life in St. Louis inside and outside of slavery prior to the Civil War. With recreation hands-on pieces and a one-of-a-kind dollhouse from 1837, "A Room Divided" provides information on the unique situation that faced St. Louis prior to the Civil War: slave owners and anti-slavery sympathizers living side by side, a city that housed both slaves and free blacks; a modern city inside a slave state.
