Old-Fashioned Ice Cream Social

Invite your friends and family to experience an afternoon inspired by Phoenix during the turn of the century.

Take a guided tour of the 1895 Rosson House.  Learn about the families who called it home and discover how they lived. As you explore each room, feel what life during this time would have been like.

Afterward, retire to The Bungalow to indulge in an old-fashioned ice cream sundae with all the fixings. Sit inside the comfort of The Bungalow or find a shady spot on the lawn to relax, socialize, and play a game of croquet. You’re welcome to come in costume!
