Phoenix, Heritage Square, AZ

Heritage Square sits on the last remaining residential block of the original site of the town of Phoenix. It tells the story of how Phoenix residents lived before Arizona became a state. It is also home to restaurants and a museum shop.

Preservation efforts for Heritage Square began in the 1970s when then Mayor John D. Driggs stepped in to preserve the Rosson House. Architect Robert Frankeberger designed the park, which was designated "Historic Heritage Park". In 1976, preservation and restoration of the historic homes and the addition of the Lath House began, and the park opened in 1980
