You don’t need a time machine to travel back to the 19th century – at least, not when places like Heritage Square in Phoenix exist. Frozen in the past, this quaint city block is home to the Rosson House, an 1895 Queen Anne Victorian-style mansion that eternalizes the early days of our capital city. It’s a fun and educational experience the whole family is sure to enjoy.
Tours are held every hour, on the hour from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Friday-Saturday and 12 p.m. until 4 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are available both online and at the Visitor Center.
