Tea Time at Heritage Square

We are so disappointed to report that our popular Tea Time event scheduled for May has been cancelled. All tours and programs are postponed in support of the health and safety of our staff, volunteers, and our community. Please stay safe and healthy.

We look forward to seeing you next time.

Please join us for a visit to the Rosson House Museum, followed by a mouth-watering Afternoon Tea.  Start your visit with a tour of this 1895 high-style Victorian home. Enjoy a stroll past the blooming rose garden. Then, relax over an elegant Afternoon Tea in The Bungalow at Heritage Square. Tea sandwiches, scones, and tea will be served on exquisite vintage china.

  • Raffle to Support the Roses

    Our rose garden has been revitalized this year, and we expect it to be spectacular by early May.  To support this effort, we will be raffling off two gift baskets over the weekend. One basket will be garden themed and will include pots, decorative garden stakes, seeds and so much more. The other basket will be tea themed and will include tea, china, and tea accessories.

    Please plan to purchase your raffle tickets on site: $5 for one, $12 for 3 tickets. We will have volunteers on hand to help. Proceeds go toward rose garden maintenance. If you win and live in the Phoenix metro area, we will deliver your basket.  If you live further afield, please plan to pay $19.95 to cover shipping.
