Title: Riordan Mansion State Historic Park

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 servant's quarters. The Riordan residence was designed by the creator of Grand Canyon's El Tovar Hotel, Charles Whittlesey.

Guided tours of the Mansion given daily, at the top of the hour. Tours begin at 9 am. Tour size is limited and reservations are highly recommended. Reservations are made by calling the Park at (928) 779-4395
