Why are you reporting this puzzle?

September 13, 1831 - Samuel Cupples was born in Pennsylvania. He opened a store in St. Louis in 1851 and soon needed a more efficient distribution system. Cupples and his partner, Robert Brookings, built a complex of 18 warehouses along the railroad tracks between 1893 and 1895. The Cupples Complex soon became the center of rail shipments to St. Louis, and a model for other cities. His mansion constructed between 1888 and 1890 still stands on the campus of St. Louis University.

@JimGreene As we were leaving the Castle we happeded to meet the director of its supporting organization. It was he, when he found out we are from St. Louis, told us of the Cupples connection.

Craigdarroch Castle seems to go a bit further. I didn't know about Craigdarroch Castle but I might be able to see it next year! Thanks jerrys

@JimGreene A magnificent house. The interior woodwork is stunning and each room is a different wood. It is said to have inspired Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria, B.C.
