Flagstaff Pullen House History

The house that was Lynn's Inn and is now the England House Bed and Breakfast once was owned by the Pullens.  We'll be adding some more history of the house and the Pullen's involvement here as we get it.  We are hoping to somehow get in touch with the Clark's.  They owned the house prior to Lynn's Inn and have extensive information on its history.

This unique sandstone two-story homestead style home was built between 1902 and 1909 (depending on which record you read) from materials excavated from a local quarry by the England family. Construction was completed in 1909.   Mr. England died before it was completed.   Mrs. England lived there until she died in Oct. 1937.  Dwight and Marie Pullen bought the house at a public auction in the spring of 1941.  They lived there until just before Dwight retired in 1963. 

The Victorian era home is now opening its doors, as one Flagstaff’s most unique bed and breakfasts.  Now known as the England House Bed and Breakfastwww.EnglandHouseBandB.com

There is an interesting story about the house and the England family in "Mountain Town", a book by Platt Cline.

Marie Pullen in the early 1940's

In the Spring of 1941, the England house at 614 West Santa Fe Avenue in Flagstaff was purchased by Mr. and Mrs. DF Pullen by a low bid of $3500 at auction.  Extensive cleaning and papering and interior and exterior painting was required.  New plumbing fixtures were installed.  A two-story back porch was constructed over the existing cellar entrance, with a pull-up door built into the lower floor.  Wooden stairs were built from the lower porch floor to the new second story porch floor, thus permitting entrance to the back bedroom from outside the house.

A new oil stove was placed in the main living room at the inside north west corner.

A new coal-wood cooking stove, a new sink and a new refrigerator were placed in the kitchen.  The upstairs bathroom equipment was new and a toilet and small sink were installed in the main-floor, northwest “study.”

The Pullen family moved into the house after school ended at the end of May 1941.

Outdoor work on the rock wall and side walks began at that time and continued during the summer.
