About Kachina Village

However, the country club dissolved in the 1970s, and the private forested tract has been simply “Kachina Village” ever since. Unlike other Flagstaff neighborhoods, Kachina Village is strictly a single-home community, so you’ll find mobile homes, cabins manufactured homes, and single-family homes all in the same neck of the woods. Whether you’re an outdoor enthusiast who longs to be close to the trails or is just seeking a home with a bit of privacy (and without a homeowner’s association), Kachina Village might be the right neighborhood for you.
