Hubertus Schotten House

This exemplary example of the Romanesque Revival sits in the western end of Saint Louis University’s campus on the West Pine Boulevard pedestrian mall.

Like its more famous neighbor to the east, the Samuel Cupples House, it features massive tower with hulking proportions.

An ornate terracotta panel accents the second floor.

Hubertus Schotten, whose picture you can see here, is buried in Calvary Cemetery and was a member of the family business in spices, tea and coffee.

Look at the size of that granite lintel! The family actually attended SLU when the campus was much smaller than it is today.
