Create an itinerary including Curtiss Mansion
As the only existing structure directly connected to aviation pioneer and promoter, flying ace, prolific inventor, developer, "Father of Naval Aviation" and Distinguished Flying Cross recipient Glenn Hammond Curtiss, the Curtiss Mansion at 500 Deer Run was not only home to Curtiss and his family from its construction in 1925 to his death in 1930, but also the setting for a prodigious body of work and number of accomplishments and activities that the great man undertook while in residence.

The building is located on a beautifully landscaped triangular lot entered through a pair of Pueblo Revival gatehouses that are consistent with the design of the Mansion. A long winding driveway lined with tall stately royal palms leads from the gatehouses past the one-acre free form pond to the Mansion's main entrance.

It will now be a beautiful venue for all types of events in addition to the new home of Experience Aviation by Barrington Irving.

  • Well worth the trip to see and hear about the Curtiss Mansion. The docent who spoke to us about the facility was excellent. For the most part except for an upstairs office there was no furniture.

  • Looks like an amazing place to hold an event HOWEVER their website is horrible. I would click on links to study location/pricing and would not open pages.....this is costing you business....need to find a better webmaster.
  • We had the pleasure of performing at Curtiss Mansion Sunday August 15th, 2021. The grounds is so beautiful and the staff was extremely nice and very helpful. They made our live performer feel right at home. We highly recommend you hosting your next event with Curtiss Mansion. We looking forward to partnering with them for future events and projects. We travel all over the United States and never experienced this type of hospitality that gave us 1000%!
