This is a 40-room mansion that was home to Timothy and Michael Riordan, who settled the Flagstaff area. Unlike the remainder of Arizona, the home is made of wood. The home is arts and crafts sytle and has many unusual items and family collections. The tour guide was knowledgeable and I came away with a greater understanding of the development of this part of Arizona that I would not have gotten if I had just visited the Grand Canyon. Very personal. Not too crowded as people do not know about this.
