“Get a glimpse at the past”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

If you want to know how the founders of Flagstaff lived this is the place. An extensive tour of the historic home and grounds gives you a glimpse into the past. It's located just off of the main street into Flagstaff next to the NAU campus.

“Beautiful Arts and Crafts Mansions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

The Docent tour is well worth the $10. Very knowlegeable about the History of the family and the Flagstaff area. The architecture is very interesting and unusual for 1904.

“Enjoyable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2012

We had an excellent tour guide, Mary, who made this experience very enjoyable. I love seeing old homes and hearing the stories about the people who lived there. The tour was about an hour long and very affordable. We just happened to be in the area so we stopped by. They accomodated our group of 10 on the spur of the moment.

“Good examples of Arts & Crafts Period furniture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

The mansion had some very rare Arts & Crafts (Stickley) furniture that we really enjoyed examining. The stained glass windows were pretty fabulous as well.

“RIORDAN MANSION, FLAGSTAFF, AZ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

Love visiting historic sites & Riordan Mansion was wonderful. Seeing how people from the past lived, work and played is fascinating. Makes me appreciate all the modern conveniences we have. The Riordan's were a very rich family and did not live how the rest of the citizens lived, but love seeing our past, rich or poor.
