In the early 1900s the ladies outnumbered the men in the Riordan household nearly two to one. This talk will give insight into the lives of Caroline and Elizabeth Metz Riordan, two sisters from Cincinnati who left the city and moved to the wilds of Flagstaff, Arizona to marry the Riordan brothers, Tim and Michael, in the 1890s. The ladies, cousins to the Babbitt Brothers, brought along their mother and younger sister, Alice, and made Flagstaff their home, raising four girls and three boys between them in the rough lumber town. Along with some help from maids like Florence Perris and various cooks, they kept house, traveled and entertained in their spacious 13,000-square-foot Arts and Crafts home, now a museum and State Park.
