Our Visit to The Samuel Cupples House and Gallery

Last weekend, as a part of Don’s school project, we visited the Samuel Cupples House and Gallery located on the campus on Saint Louis University.  Don was tasked with visiting this location and capturing his experience.  Since we chose to visit Halloween weekend, we thought it would be funny to tell the kids it was haunted.  I was able to locate a few stories online but nothing that didn’t seem made up. 

We arrived around noon on Saturday.  We couldn’t find parking near the mansion so we parked a little distance away.  It was a beautiful day out so we didn’t mind the walk.  The place was massive and we were anxious to get inside despite the haunted rumors.  There was tons of old art, antiques, and stained glass windows.  It was quite an experience.  By the end of the tour, we determined it was an experience we only needed once.
