Two days before seeing the Grand Canyon, I decided to explore the attractions of downtown Flagstaff. My first visit was to the historic Riordan Mansion. The mansion was a short walk from my hotel (Econo Lodge/University). The house is nestled on a few acres of beautiful pines trees and just steps away from the campus of Northern Arizona University.

We have been to Flagstaff many times but somehow never made it to the Riordan Mansion. It was number one on our list for our latest visit. We were not disappointed. We got there half an hour before the next tour, and debated whether it was worth the wait. It definitely was! We spent time wandering the grounds before the... More

Had stayed in Flagstaff and gone to Jerome and Sedona over the weekend and was looking for something fun to do on Sunday morning before heading home. Found this online and was extremely pleased with the tour and the history. It's actually the largest duplex in Arizona. Well worth the time and effort to visit.

This was truly a unique mansion, unlike anything I've toured before. The arts and craft style, the fact that basically everything is original, interesting facts and the photos on the windows were simply stunning!

Initially unassuming, this house unfolds with beautiful design and architectural details that highlight the Arts and Crafts style. They only offer guided tours. We went on a lark and were the only two on the tour, which was lovely. Fans of Downton Abbey will love this tour as the home was built and lived in almost at the same time... More

The former garage, which was to fit as many as six cars, was modified and turned into the greeting center for paying entry fee and linking up with a proper guide. The house is 6,000 sq. ft. and was built in 1904 by two brothers who were coincidentally married to two sisters. Interestingly they divided the house into two homes... More

Great attraction. While we did not take the tour, you can pay $.50 and get a map and do the outside tour yourself.

A wonderful visit; docent was very informed, and the entire tour was very interesting! My only complaint would be that our docent did not seem to like questions, and, as an owner of an historical home myself, I am always full of questions. While most docents on such tours appreciate and invite questions, I got the impression that he thought... More

This is a great place to take a look back in time. The decor was very interesting, especially in the kitchen.
