A huge and magnificent example of Victorian architecture!

You will be awed by the vastness of this large stone mansion. Park on the street and walk a short distance onto campus. You will not be disappointed!

My husband and I toured this beautiful mansion while vacationing in St. Louis. It was hard to find as it is actually in the campus of the university. Parking was also a challenge. It was worth the effort, though. The home is beautiful. I especially loved the stained glass windows. The tour is self-guided and took us about an hour.... More

Beautiful stain glass windows, amazing wood work. We had two tour groups, both led by docent, Tara, and they were fabulous! Tara was knowledgeable and very passionate about the home. This house is amazing and I highly recommend seeing it. You don't have to go with a tour group, you can do a self-walking tour, but I'm glad I went... More

A delight for lovers of the decorative arts who appreciate the opportunity to explore at their own pace, without a group or docent guide. Pick up the lengthy booklet from the front desk for insights into decorative symbolism and original uses of the home's 42 rooms, and the preservation activism that saved the mansion from the wrecking ball. Had a... More

Glimpse back to the turn of the century St Louis wealthy self made families home. The architecture, the art (Mary Cassatt) and the glass collection by Steuben! Amazing. Only self guided tours but I wish they had a guided tour so we could learn even more!

This is one of the most stunning Victorian homes I've been in. It's located on the grounds of SLU. You can't see the house from the street, you have to go inside the campus grounds to find it. The campus grounds are pretty too, with a few Victorian homes nestled in. The stone house is impressive at first sight. Once... More

A beautiful mansion on St Louis University campus that is in excellent shape with many beautiful furnishings. Tour is free, but consisted of a self guided read of a pamphlet that did not provide much information. The experience would definitely benefit from a knowledgable docent

The Samuel Cupples house is a historic mansion filled with great architecture and wonderful collections of art and antiques. It is quite the little gem we stumbled across as we took our daughter to college at SLU! It is magnificent and a true asset to the University. Admission is free and it is a nice little retreat from the city.

This historic house sits on the Saint Louis University property and you have to walk to get to it, but worth it!

Took the tour and found the history fascinating. Easy to do in an hour or 2. Kids may lose interest easily but the marketing director who gave the tour was very informative.
