Not to be missed. Flagstaff was more than just a "getaway" for cooler climes. It supported early lumber, mining, and railroad industry - with a large employment base for early Europeans. Irish and German immigrants developed the town and the education system. A must see for a look at the life of settlers to the Arizona northern territory.

We went on the one hour tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our tour guide was a young lady who did a good job explaining the history of the mansion and the families that resided there. The 13,000 sq. foot mansion, built in 1904, was home to two brothers who married two sisters. Each family had their own side of the... More

The tour of the mansion shows you a glimpse of what life was like for the very rich in Flagstaff at the turn of the century. It focuses on the lives of the Riordan Family who ran the timber mill in the area. It is an arts and craft mansion showing a lot of handmade furniture. Our guide had a... More

What a gorgeous house! One wing is fully furnished with an impressive 85% of the original/family furniture, and the other contains displays about Flagstaff's history, the family and Gustav Stickley, among other things. If you're holding back because one old house museum looks like another to you, don't let that keep you from visiting this one...the Arts & Crafts décor... More

The house was not what I expected, but the stories of the tour guide made it worth while. I wished I was allowed to take pictures.

The mansion is very nice place to visit, so with that said I would recommend visiting. It really is interesting to see the founders home of Flagstaff being enveloped by the town. This is an impressive home on maybe, an acre of land.I guess I was a little disappointed to find that the place was not this twenty acre homestead,but... More
