If you go just before the season, you're likely to get a personalised tour with only one or two others, which is really nice. The place has a fascinating history and the brothers were clearly responsible for just about everything that ever happened to get Flagstaff up and running. Their story and that of their wives and the twin houses... More

Very interesting building and story. Our tour guide was well informed and passed the stories and information about the Riodans very well. However, I thought the tour was a little long. We really had no interest in the complete tour of the servants quarters as an example nor did we need to see each and every room upstairs. The tour... More

This is the real story of the West, hardships and great fortunes. This mansion is shockingly close to downtown Flagstaff, and somehow hidden so you can't believe a place this huge is tucked away right off of the main road! Original relics direct from the family fill one side of this double mansion=mirror images of each other connected by an... More

A visit to the mansion is an interesting way to look at the history of Flagstaff through the life of one prominent family. I was fun to compare the mansion to others we have visited around the country. It was very modern in the interior for its day.

First make sure you call ahead and get a reservation. The tours are limited to 15 people at a time. Very unique way of life for these brothers who helped to make Flagstaff what it is today. If you are a history buff, enjoy this mansion.

Very interesting architecture with two homes joined by a great room for the mingling of these early Flagstaff families. The two brothers and their wives employed different designs and the latest technology available at the time on the interior, using local and reclaimed natural products where possible. The interior furnishings are a surprise after the rustic look of the exterior.... More

$10 per person is steep to us for touring the homes. It was very interesting and the guide knew tons and tons of things about the family and the homes.
