About Heritage Square

Heritage Square is a striking reminder of the city’s vibrant Victorian past. Located on Block 14 of the original townsite of Phoenix, the Square dates back to the late 1800s, and the restored Rosson House Museum is its crowning jewel. While at Heritage Square, visitors can tour the Museum, and see our Visitor Center and Heritage Gallery, The Bungalow museum store, three award-winning restaurants, a coffee shop, and a wine bar. A visit to the Square provides an afternoon of history, culture and relaxation.
Our Foundation is dedicated to preserving and sharing the stories, collection, historic buildings and grounds of the Square, serving as a relevant, engaging, and inclusive community resource and as a tangible connection to our diverse local history. Heritage Square is operated in partnership by the Heritage Square Foundation (a 501c-3 non-profit organization) and the City of Phoenix Parks and Recreation Department, and is owned by the City of Phoenix. Visit for more information.
