Overview

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.

We had the opportunity to tour the Riordan Mansion and it was impressive. The tour guide was so interesting and full of great information. I want to go back for one of their special Sunday tours.

The Riordan Mansion is well worth a visit for history buffs of all ages. Built during the peak of the lumber industry in Flagstaff it captures the life style of the western "well to do" lumber barons. The house was transferred from family to state...More

We enjoyed our visit. The house is a bit underwhelming when you pull up, but there is a ton on the inside and some of it is pretty unique. The staff were great and the tour was informative, although a bit fast. The biggest downfall...More

Tours every hour, $10 per adult admission. Quite a lot of original furnishings and unique decor really show how the wealthy lived in early 1900's. Some interesting architecture. Good tour, but the docent really raced through the information to get to everything in one hour.
