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

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

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
