“Step back into Arizona history.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

A great short tour of this Eastlake manor home. A step back in time and in downtown Phoenix, near many other attractions and restaurants.

“It's AZ history! And really interesting. . . .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

If you're visiting downtown, right near the AZ Science Center is the Rosson House. From the early 1900's, theRosson family lived here and it's been restored with most of the original furnishings and fixtures, as well as the paint and wallpaper. A cool piece of AZ history!

“Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2013

In a place like Phoenix it can be pretty hard to get a sense of the history of the area. This tour is a must see for those that enjoy history and have an appreciation for preserving our past. Executive Director Tom W. and his team do an excellent job of giving you a great feel for what life in Phoenix was like in the early 1900's. Great tour, excellent restoration!

“An Interesting Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

This is a well restored 1800's victorian house. A nice visit if you are staying in the downtown area or want a quick trip to see a little history.
