The Rosson House

rosson houseA visit to the Rosson House permits visitors to step back in time to the early 1900s and get a glimpse into how the well-to-do of Phoenix lived in this era. Campers at Desert Shadows RV Resort can spend a delightful hour touring this beautiful Victorian house that is a most interesting historical treasure trove. The house has been lovingly restored with authentic details, including period furnishings and $48,000 of wallpaper that was recreated to look like the original. Guided tours are held every day except Monday and Tuesday. Admission is $7.50 for adults and $6 for seniors.

When you visit the Rosson House, you can make a pleasant afternoon of it by exploring the neighborhood and taking lunch in one of the nearby restaurants. The attraction resides in Heritage Square, which is home to other historical buildings that have been turned into museums and restaurants.

One restaurant option is Pizzeria Bianco, an eatery housed in a building that dates back to 1929. The proprietor uses locally grown vegetables, bakes his own bread and makes his own mozzarella cheese.

Another option is Bar Bianco, a coffee house and bakery housed in a 1909 neoclassical building. This establishment compliments Pizzeria Blanco.

Those who love the romance and beauty of the Victorian era will adore seeing this part of Phoenix. Visit our website and book your spot at our RV park today.
