Riordan Mansion State Historic Park
Th to Mo from 10:30 AM to 05:00 PMLumber barons Timothy and Michael Riordan built this 40-room mansion in 1904 to house their massive families. It's architect, Charles Whittlesey, also designed the magnificent El Tovar Hotel located at the Grand Canyon. What's most interesting about the structure is that the two sides are mirror images, with a huge common area in the center, to provide each family with identical private quarters and shared living spaces. The park also includes picnic areas and a visitors center that contains exhibits. Guided tours of the mansion and grounds are held at regular times throughout the day.
