The Standrod Mansion

The Standrod Mansion was built by Drew & Emma Standrod in 1902. The home has been described as ‘the finest example of Victorian architecture’ and is arguably the most historic house in the state of Idaho. Included in the Circa 1900 Victorian Queen Ann period, It has been officially identified by historians as a “French Renaissance Revival”.The Standrod Mansion is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.The sixteen room manor was designed by San Francisco architect Marcus Grundfor who specialized in classical revival designs.

The cost was approximately $12,000 and took seven years to complete. The stone was quarried at a nearby city, McCammon Idaho, which was then hauled by wagon to be prepared by masons in the backyard of the property. The home originally had a coal furnace that provided central heating and was equipped with electric lighting that was said to be the first in the state.

In 1974 the City of Pocatello bought the property and undertook the restoration for the Bicentennial. Extensive repairs were made to both the exterior and interior, taking great precaution to restore the home to its original grandeur. Upon completion, the City began using the building as a museum and cultural event center, it was enjoyed by the public for many years. The property has been privately owned since 1995.
