Built in 1904 for two Riordan families, Riordan Mansion is an impressive reminder of gracious living in a small, territorial logging town. The historic building is an Arizona treasure — a remarkable example of Arts and Crafts style architecture featuring a rustic exterior of log-slab siding, volcanic stone arches, and hand-split wooden shingles. The expansive home has forty rooms, over 13,000 square-feet of living area, and servants' quarters. The Riordan residence was designed by the creator of Grand Canyon's El Tovar Hotel, Charles Whittlesey.

We all enjoyed the mansion and learning the history of the family and Flagstaff. The only concern I have is that it is not disability friendly . I understand that you can't change the stairs but there isn't even a chair ANYWHERE you can sit...More

Interesting place to visit. Kind of fun to imagine what the family was like. So many smart uses of angles to capture good sun days. Great tour guides.

This is a beautiful mansion and the tour was very interesting. It was ten dollars a person, which did seem a bit expensive, but I am glad I went.

This tour was wonderful! If you have any interest in history this is a must. It was a guided tour and our group was small so we could easily ask questions. The tour guide was great and took her time.
