  • Excellent 1 hr tour given by a very informative guide. This arts and craft mansion had many conveniences for the period it was built (1904).. 2 wood baron brothers and their families lived here.. 2 mirror houses joined by a common room.. pretty neat!
  • Randomly chose this site while in Flagstaff. Ended up being a great choice! Very interesting. Lots of area history. Tour guide had a heart for the family & property. Her enthusiasm was contagious.
