DescriptionBuilt in 1904 for two Riordan families, the Riordan Mansion is an impressive reminder of gracious living in a small, territorial logging town. The large mansion is comprised of two separate homes connected by a common area known as the billiard room.
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 servant's quarters. The Riordan residence was designed by the creator of Grand Canyon's El Tovar Lodge, Charles Whittlesey.
Riordan Mansion State Historic Park is located next to Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff on Riordan Road.
