Historic Heritage Square Tours

Historic Heritage Square

Historic Heritage Square takes you back in time to Arizona’s Victorian past. The square is home to the only remaining residential structures of the original Phoenix town site. Heritage Square features eleven Victorian buildings, each with its own unique design, history, and purpose. Today, the buildings have been refurbished and reopened as museums, restaurants, and shops. Each building is designed to give visitors a taste of life back in the original Phoenix settlement. The Baird Machine Shop, for example, was built in 1929 as a commercial structure. Today it is home to Pizzeria Bianco, a local pizza place featuring a wood-burning brick oven, homemade mozzarella cheese, and locally grown vegetables.

The cornerstone of the square is the Rossen House, a 2,800 square feet (260 square meters), fully restored, Victorian home which is now regularly open for guided tours. Build in 1895, the home features ten rooms and five fireplaces. Exhibits such as “A Victorian Christmas” and “A Victorian Wedding” all help the museum capture and show life as it was in the early twentieth century.

Practical Info

The square is located within the Heritage and Science Park, which, in addition to Heritage Square, also includes the Arizona Science Center, the Phoenix Museum of History, and a variety of shops and restaurants. The park is located in downtown Phoenix on Northwest corner 6th Street and Monroe. Today, Heritage Square is run by Heritage Square Foundation and Guild, a non-profit organization which aims to preserve the historical value of the buildings while educating visitors through special exhibition, events, and activities.
