Robison Mansion

The Robison Mansion was built in 1885 by Lyman Robison, a Scottish immigrant who made his fortune in the silver mines of Leadville. Though his fortune was made in Leadville, Robison's wife, Mary, wanted a home away from the bitter cold winters. The sprawling 6,000 plus square foot residence sits on 3.5 acres on the south banks of the Arkansas River, and today is the setting for weddings, private gatherings and community events.
