Two brothers marry two sisters and construct a two-sided mansion with the same 6000 square feet limitation on living quarters, but with very significant differences in architectural tastes within the oeuvre of western rustic. All at the turn of the 19th into the 20th century and beyond. What could possibly beat that? Terrific enthusiasts serve as guides, and the tour... More

This was a great tour. The tour guide, Lou, is very knowledgeable and passionate about the Riordan family and their home and still researches and interviews the grandchildren and great grandchildren. The furnishings in the home are original to the family, so you really get a glimpse of how they lived.

my kids and I enjoyed the tour a lot. Not too long, and full of great stuff to see. Agree that it would probably bore younger kids.

I am a member of one of one of the families that also help put Flagstaff on the map. My Grandmother, Grandfather, mother, aunt and uncle all spent time in this house when it was still owned by the family. I've heard a few stories of the fond memories of their time there and I love visiting knowing that this... More

This was ok, but only mildly more interesting than my own grandparents homestead home. The friend I was with LOVED it, as it is unique.

Being long-time residents of Flagstaff, we treated ourselves to a Christmas tour of the Riordan Mansion. We learned even more about the Riordan family and their contributions to the town of Flagstaff and the community. This is truly a living history museum as members of the family still contribute stories and furnishing. If you want to see true Craftsman architecture... More
