This was a cool place. The architecture was absolutely amazing! The stories on how they lived was cool and how they renovated the house was interesting.

Took family to see this house, one of the earliest brick homes in Phoenix. Somewhat interesting, but probably moreso for the architect-minded. Our participation and enjoyment was dampened by a member of our family's inability to see the upstairs area due to physical constraints. It's not an ADA-compliant tour, and its charm would be ruined if they tried to make... More

This is located in Heritage Square and it's one of those places you may pass often, but not know you can actually take a tour. The tour lasts about an hour and on Sunday it was offered on the hour from 12 pm - 3 pm. We had Tom Walsh as our tour guide and he made it thoroughly enjoyable.... More

A very special way to spend an afternoon. The house is decorated in period findings that were donated by the Phoenix community and families who occupied the house historically. Perfect for a few hours of entertainment in an otherwise busy metropolis. The guide was delightful and willing to answer all questions. One caution: the stairs are very steep, not accessible...

We had Tom Walsh as our tour guide. The house is definitely worth seeing even without Tom - I'm told he's now "semi-retired" - but his talk was excellent: Interesting and he kept it relevant to the people on the tour. Rosson House is a Victorian, completely uncharacteristic of other houses in Phoenix, then or now. Tom explained why and... More

This was a pleasant surprise in downtown Phoenix! Our tour guide, Stan, was very personable giving the history of the house and great at answering questions. This was an hour tour, then we walked around Heritage Square, so it wasn't too long.

Relaxing, leisure yet very educational and historical tour. The Rosson House in Heritage Square in downtown Phoenix, is very interesting. The tour takes approx. 1 hour, through the Rosson House and in 1 of the bungalow's. Try and get Heather, she is an excellent tour guide. The simple small grounds are beatiful in March, the rose garden is in bloom.... More

This original mansion in downtown Phoenix plus the adjoining Heritage Square were most entertaining and relaxing in a downtown location. The administration buildings of Arizona State University across the street were nice as well, done in the Spanish Colonial style. The ambiance of the area were most enjoyable. .

The entire square is wonderful. The restoration of the Rosson Mansion is fantastic. It is very well done. Our tour guide,Barb, was very knowledgable and she did a great job. She is very soft spoken so it would be nice for her to some voice magnification. The Victoria Secrets display was very interesting. I've visited many historical sites and this... More
