This was an amazing tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. Amazing home. Only wish you could take pictures in the east side residence. Pretty cool all it has for the time period it was built in. Highly recommend

If you appreciate craftsman architecture and local history, be sure to take a tour of the Riordan Mansion. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and helped us imagine what life would have been like for the original families. Unique historic "duplex" set up.

Very interesting. A must see if you like historic houses! The tour is worth the fee as the house has many original furnishings etc. The tour visits both sides of the mansion.

Our guide around the house was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the house and Flagstaff in general so I could really imagine what life was like in those days. The house is located in wonderful surroundings and there... More

Last week we went with a group on a trip that included Riordan Mansion, an Arizona State Historical Park. The Riordans were major lumber business owners, and the house was built in 1904 for the two Riordan brothers who had married two sisters. The two wings are mirror images of each other with a common room in the middle. All... More

We enjoyed the tour and all of the info about historical Flagstaff. Seeing the large collection of Stickley furniture was a plus.

Fascinating visit to the Riordan Mansion. You must go on a guided tour and reservations are recommended, as numbers for each tour are limited. The house was built in 1904 and was home the two Riordan brothers who were married to two Babbitt sisters. The Riordans owned a lumber mill and were the largest employers in Flagstaff at the time....

Going here is a nice thing to do if you are looking to see what it was like to live in "luxury" fashion in rural areas long ago. The tour was not too long and was suitably informative. It is also conveniently located.
