Rosson House at Heritage Square

The oldest extant residential block in Phoenix, Heritage Square offers a gorgeous slice of Phoenix history. You can tour the Rosson House Museum, which inhabits the restored 1895 Rosson House, and get a taste of Phoenix life at the turn of the 20th century.

Also in the square, you will find galleries, award-winning restaurants — the Asian-style Nobuo At Teeter House, Pizzaria Bianco, and The Rose And Crown — a Victorian gift shop, a coffee bar and an event facility. The event facility hosts cultural festivals, classic car shows and more throughout the year. Many of these events cost nothing.

If you want to experience life in the past, drop on on Handcrafted, a maker space that offers activity kits and workshops. You can use vintage tools and processes in the areas of Ink, Junk, Fiber, Food & Wood.
