Overview

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.

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.

The mansion is located off the main street, across from some University buildings. Our tour guide was very good and the visit was like stepping back in time. We enjoyed seeing the rooms and furnishings and learning about the family. If you like doing house...More

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.

Great tour of the house built by two brothers who married two sisters. One of the interesting things about the house is it was designed by the same individual that designed the El Tovar Hotel at the Grand Canyon.

This is a historical gem right in the middle of town! Don't pass this one up! We visit lots of museums and this is one of our favorites! The guides are very knowledgeable and fun! It's like stepping back into time!

This is a pretty interesting place. A real time capsule as the house is not staged but left pretty much as the former inhabitants left it. There are actually two houses joined by a common area in the middle. Two Flagstaff Pioneer Brothers, The Riordan's,...More
