Heritage Square’s Visitor Center is host to an exhibit that explores where the City of Phoenix gets its water, dating back over 800 years to the canals built by the Ancestral Sonoran Desert People.

Rosson House Museum

Is a 2,800 square foot Eastlake Victorian style home, built in 1895 by Dr. and Mrs. Roland Rosson. A classic example of the late Victorian style, it is fully restored to its original grandeur. Experience what life was like for residents of Phoenix in territorial Arizona. Docent-guided tours feature all living areas of the house and highlight the stories, people and places that influenced the property and surroundings. Tours are available during regular business hours, and last 45-60 minutes. An admission fee is charged.

The Rosson House was restored in the 1970s through a community effort involving the City of Phoenix, dozens of local institutions and hundreds of volunteers. To learn more about the restoration of the Rosson House, view this video, courtesy KAET.
