  • Beautifully decorated for Christmas. Worth a visit any time of year. Built by 2 brothers in early Flagstaff lumber industry.
  • Great place to discover how Flagstaff came to. Good guides and original furniture. Well laid out tour of that time.
  • We did not take a tour but it was a cool place even from the outside. The brochure they give you explains the different things around the mansion.
  • Interesting history about how 2 brothers married 2 sisters and how they made 1 big house so as not to be separated. Also the history of a very important sawmill in Flagstaff, AZ.
  • Was a very good tour. Well worth the $10. Interesting history
