Historic Flagstaff

Flagstaff takes great pride in its history.  As such, there is a great interest in maintaining historic buildings in downtown Flagstaff.  The Flagstaff Railroad Addition Historic District is a significant part of that history.  The district covers an area originally bordered by Santa Fe RR tracks, Agassiz and Beaver Sts., Birch and Aspen Avenues.  The area was later expanded to include 9 additional buildings.

Here are some notable examples of historic structures in the downtown Flagstaff Railroad Addition Historic District.

Flagstaff Station

Opened in 1926, Flagstaff Station still serves as an active Amtrak station and as a visitor center.  Located next to the main station is the original solid red sandstone freight depot built in 1886.

Flagstaff Telephone Exchange

Built by John Weatherford in 1909, this building serves as the first major telephone office in the city.

Weatherford Hotel

Also built by John Weatherford  in 1898, this was the first of new buildings established after disastrous fires swept through the area.  These new buildings, like the hotel, were built with brick, stone, or iron in order to resist fire. This was the most prominent hotel in Flagstaff at the time and entertained many famous guests.
