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 house is a wonderful example of Arts and Crafts style as well as early innovations in technology. Much of the furniture and artifacts of the house are original to the owners. Fascinating information about the early timber trade also.

Really enjoyed the tour of the Riordan Mansion. The tour guide was passionate about telling the history of the Riordans and was quite entertaining. It gives you a great history on Flagstaff and how influential the Riordans actually were.

Enjoyed the Riordan Mansion and listening to the guide tell the story of the Riordan Family. Good self guided tour of the outside. Guided tour of the inside was about 45 minutes and $10 per person.

Great tour and definitely a hidden gem that you wouldn't expect to see adjacent to the boring NAU architecture. This home is pretty warm on a hot summer day in Flag so go earlier in the day.
