We spent a very enjoyable time going through the Riordan Mansion on a guided tour. I'm pretty sure the docents are volunteers, and ours was exceptional -- obviously knew the house and family in depth and loved sharing her knowledge. It was early June, so the group was small and it was easy to have our questions answered. The house... More

I love visiting historic houses and this one is one of the best. I actually visited it in 11/11 or 12/11 (but couldn't put that in the "when did you visit" box); I was reminded of it when I was in Flagstaff again a month ago. I loved the handcrafted Craftsman(i.e. Stickley, Ellis, etc.) furniture, the Arts and Crafts architecture,... More

What I liked about the Riordan Mansion is that it is older than I am, and probably in better shape. I like history. The history of Flagstaff is particularly interesting, and the Riordan Mansion embodies that history. The tour guides tell colorful stories. The architecture is rustic and delightful. If you get here in December the place is fixed up... More

What a great place to visit to see a mansion from the early 1900s. The staff was amazing and the tour was great. Highly recommended.

I have recently visited Riordan Manison State Historic Park and I am in total awe of this magnificent house. I was amazed at how well the Rangers and staff have kept up the State park. The tours were very informative. :)

Visiting this mansion will give you an insight into the history of Flagstaff. The Riordan family helped shape the evolution of the town. The home was built in 1904 and only the Riordan family lived here, so much of the family’s artifacts were donated along with the houses and property. The duplex home was built with all of the amenities... More

Great historic double family house of the Riordan's of Flagstaff. Tour was very interesting; family history of the Riordan family; done by very friendly lady. The house is furnished with the original furniture and cooking range. Nice small garden too.

This is a great park with a focus on Flagstaff and early Arizona history. Fans of the Arts and Crafts movement and architecture will have the house on their must-do list. The Stickley furniture and the design of the house made this tour for me. The grounds are beautiful and the tour is great showing the inside of the house... More

Took the guided tour of the Riordan Mansion. Very different from mansions in Newport, Rhode Island or those in North Carolina and Florida. Reflects the building materials readily available in northern Arizona. Had much of the original furniture and some clothing that the family owned. Our tour took about 90 minutes.
