Heritage Square Review
In a park-like setting from 5th to 7th streets between Monroe and Adams streets, this city-owned block contains the only remaining houses from the original Phoenix townsite. On the south side of the square, along Adams Street, stand several houses built between 1899 and 1901. The Bouvier Teeter House has a Victorian-style tearoom, and the Thomas House and Baird Machine Shop are now Pizzeria Bianco, one of the area's most popular eateries.
Arizona Doll and Toy Museum. The one-story brick Stevens House holds the Arizona Doll and Toy Museum. 602 E. Adams St., 85004. 602/253–9337. $5. Tues.–Sat. 10–4, Sun. noon–4. Closed Mon. Closed Aug.
Rosson House Museum. This 1895 Victorian in the Queen Anne style is the queen of Heritage Square. Built by a physician who served a brief term as mayor, it's the sole survivor among fewer than two dozen Victorians erected in Phoenix. It was bought and restored by the city in 1974. 113 N 6th St., 85004. 602/262–5070. www.rossonhousemuseum.org. $7.50. Wed.–Sat. 10–3:30, Sun. noon–3:30.
