Mansion Families

For nearly a century, the Highlands Ranch Mansion served as a residence for some of Colorado’s most notable families. State history will remember the names Long, Springer, Hughes, Phillips, Kistler, and Phipps as synonymous with ambition and prestige. While their chosen vocations included such variety as banking, oil, law, politics, ranching, or farming, each household head shared a common place as a leader in his field, a position established prior to the time spent here at the Mansion. Exploring their vibrant lives and personalities offers a unique avenue for learning about this very special place that each of them called home.
