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

The Rosson House is located in Heritage Square in downtown Phoenix. It is a wonderful tour with a lot of historical information shared by the docents that guide you through the various rooms of this very large home. The guides were very friendly and accommodating as the day we were there a large school group also arrived so they opened... More

It is a museum, containing actual artifacts from an earlier time, here in the city of Phoenix, AZ. And yes, it is air conditioned. There are guided tours during the hours of operation so you will be given a history of the house,... More

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 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
