This tour is awsome! Rosson House has been fully restored. Has furniture inside . ( not like the other tours) there's so much history in that house. Oh, and the price on the tour is almost free. Less then $10.00 per person!:) °•○●□□□■■■

We were walking around Heritage Square and came across this tour 10 minutes before it started. It was not onlt a well done restoration, but the tour guide Barbara was very nice.

We wanted to see the Rosson House since we used to own a century home but it was not open the day we were there. We enjoyed the garden area surrounding it and the coffee shop in the area. Check to make sure it is open before going unless you enjoy sitting in the area and having a good cup... More

Do you only allow good reviews appear ? It would seem so, as I wrote one a few days ago and it never was put on this site.

This building has been maticulously restored to it's original condition and has the entire square decorated for Christmas. You can walk throughout the house and the surrounding area including a restored carriage house. Very cool to come here before taking friends out for a Christmas season dinner downtown

Met at the gift shop in front of the carriage. The docent will guide you for about 45 to 60 min. Admission is 7.50 for adults. Discounted parking validation. ended up paying 3 dollars for parking. Docent will walk you through the entrance, parlor, dining room, study, starcase, childrens rooms, master bedroom, bathroom, kitchen. I learned a lot of facts... More

I took my mom on the tour here during her visit. It lasted about 70 min (we went a little over time but could have easily gone longer). The property managers did a wonderful job restoring the buildings with as much authenticity as they could. We were lucky enough to get a retired property manager as our tour guide and... More

Nice place to spend an hour or so. The tour guide had her stuff together and could answer all of our questions. The Victorian house has a very varied past. None of the furniture is orginal to place but is time period correct. Intresting story of the houses past that the tour guide will tell you. If you like the... More

Thank you to all the reviews. My friends and I put this on our itinerary and enjoyed it all! To see this house sitting in its original spot with everything around truly was taking a step back in time. We loved the Victorian Secrets exhibit about undergarments as well. They do have a military discount for my fellow military families.... More

This is a great place to go for a small afternoon/morning trip. If you are a AAA/student/senior you do get a discounted ticket rate, so make sure and let the cashier know if you belong to any of the discounted programs. We had Charlotte as our tour guide, she was great. Very knowledgeable, friendly, and was able to answer all... More
