Even though St. Louis fell short of the World Series this year, the fact that our friends in Kansas City are doing so well brings an inter­est­ing ques­tion to light… would Robert Camp­bell have been (GASP!) a Roy­als fan?

Even though Robert lived the major­ity of his adult life in the city of St. Louis, he has sig­nif­i­cant ties to the KC area. Mr. Camp­bell began invest­ing in real estate shortly after he retired from the fur trade in the late 1830s. Most of his prop­erty was scat­tered through­out the St. Louis area, rang­ing from his family’s Lucas Place home at what is today 1508 Locust Street down­town all the way out to a plot of land that would even­tu­ally become Creve Coeur Park. But a lesser-known fact about our buddy Rob is that he also played a cru­cially impor­tant role in estab­lish­ing what is today the bustling metrop­o­lis of Kansas City, Missouri.
