This gorgeous, Romanesque Revival mansion located on the the campus of Saint Louis University is constructed of purple Colorado sandstone, complete with gargoyles and elaborate stone-carved details. The interior features 42 rooms and 22 fireplaces; stained and leaded-glass windows, as well as intricately carved woodwork. Fine art is displayed throughout the mansion, and original furnishings are complemented by Capo di Mnte, Meissen and Staffordshire porcelain. Cupples House was acquired by Saint Louis University in 1946. Restoration of the house to its original splendor began in 1973. Cupples House is home to the Eleanor Turshin glass collection, which is one of the largest private glass collections in the nation. In October 1976, the Samuel Cupples House was placed on the National Register of Historic places.
