Built in 1904 for two Riordan families, Riordan Mansion is an impressive reminder of gracious living in a small, territorial logging town. The historic building is an Arizona treasure — a remarkable example of Arts and Crafts style architecture featuring a rustic exterior of log-slab siding, volcanic stone arches, and hand-split wooden shingles. The expansive home has forty rooms, over 13,000 square-feet of living area, and servants' quarters. The Riordan residence was designed by the creator of Grand Canyon's El Tovar Hotel, Charles Whittlesey.

This is our second time we visited here but enjoyed it just as much this time. Different tour guides have different information to share and it's always great to see how people lived in days gone by.

This was interesting, but not exceptional. The way these two families lived was unusual. Visitors must be prepared to spend significant time.

We decided to visit this old home while on Northern Arizona University campus but opted not to tour the inside of the mansion (do to time constraints). We enjoyed the history of the Riordan family and their mansion which was available in the museum and...More

One of the best old house tours. The house is a 13,000 sf duplex. The swing room and the cat eye shaped dining table are amazing. Only thing disappointing is how NAU is closing in around it.

Take the tour inside the house, ask questions about pieces so you learn more about it, and take the self guided external tour. Don't rush, appreciate and take everythng in. When you are outside listen to the different sounds of the birds. Soak it all...More

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...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...More
