Flagstaff Riordan Mansion

We finished our escape to Flagstaff with one last historic attraction – the Riordan Mansion. It can be a little pricey to take a big group, but the guided tour is excellent. I have to admit, the adults enjoyed it a little too much for the children’s taste. The kids thought the adults spent too much time talking to the tour guide at the end, and continued looking at artifacts way pass lunch time. But they enjoyed it until then.Riordan Mansion

The mansion was built for the Riordan brothers who owned the local lumber mill. It has a large common recreation room that joins the two separate wings together. Each brother’s wing has the same layout but configured slightly different to meet their individual needs. One wing preserves how the home was set up in the early 1900’s, all the way to the roller skate marks the kids left in the master bedroom. The other wing is a museum of artifacts and local history.

  • The Riordan Mansion State Park is open Thursday through Monday with tours running on the hour from 10am to 4pm (tours start at 11am November through April).
  • Admission is $10 for adults (14 and up), $5 for children ages 7 -13, and free for children 6 and under.
  • It is closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas day.

While you are there, be sure to take the self-guided tour around the property. It’s a great way to let the kids run around while you enjoy the beautiful Flagstaff air and pick up a little history.Riordan Mansion

    Hi Susan, thanks for your coemnmt. I don’t have direct answers to your questions, but the architects involved with this project are on-site staff here at the Ecosa Studio. You may talk to Tom Hahn or Tony Brown here at 928-541-1002 if you would like to explore doing a similar project of your own. I believe the cost was roughly similar to conventional construction but this had solar elements and water catchment etc., integrated into the design. I’ve heard Tony express that the Flagstaff building department was accommodating to the project with no major road blocks.
