  • This Family is rich in Arizona History. Very interesting in how they lived then.Cannot touch anything, understandable,very visual almost hands-on. Have visited several times and has always been enjoyable. This was one of the first families to occupy this area.
  • Visited the mansion on St. Patrick's Day for a special whiskey tasting. They allowed the guests to sit at the main dining table for the first time which was really cool. I did not get to tour the mansion, but the overall hospitality and preparation that went into the whiskey tasting event was perfect. I hope the historical society continues to fund raise with events like that one.
  • I was able to participate in a very unique opportunity to taste scotch in the mansion thanks to the Celtic Heritage Society and Riordan Ranch SP. It was amazing. I hope to be able to participate in similar offerings in the future.
  • Amazing home. Way before their time.
  • lovely mansion near NAU. They offer tours inside and a self guided walk around the grounds. Doesn't take too long to do everything here, but worth it if you're on NAU campus waiting for something else.
