Flagstaff’s Riordan Mansion turns 110 this year, and the historic building is celebrating that anniversary Monday, August 11, with a “Brown Bag Lecture” about the property’s history.

If you’re in the area then, bring your lunch and head to Riordan Mansion State Historic Park, 409 W. Riordan Road, at noon. Dessert will be provided.

Riordan Mansion includes two nearly identical homes built by brothers Michael and Timothy Riordan, members of a prominent Flagstaff family that was involved in lumber, railroads, ranching and politics. The homes are connected by a “rendezvous room,” and altogether, they contain 13,000 square feet of space. The mansion opened as a state park in 1983.

If you can’t make it this time, don’t worry! The park holds lectures on the second Monday of each month.
