Local History
Heritage Square


Phoenix - Arizona - US


PHOENIX - Feb. 3, 2014 - PRLog -- Located in downtown Phoenix, Historic Heritage Square is an urban park that preserves the last intact residential block of the city’s original townsite. The square’s Victorian-era ambiance includes one of Phoenix’s most popular attractions, the Rosson House Museum. Other early territorial buildings (primarily pre-1912) today house the Arizona Doll and Toy Museum, five restaurants and administrative offices.

For many years, the block was a fashionable residential area that was once home to a Phoenix mayor. Over time, the neighborhood deteriorated until the early 1970s, when it was threatened with demolition for urban renewal. Preservation efforts led by Phoenix mayor John Driggs, however, saved the historic buildings. Opened in 1980 as Historic Heritage Square, the park expanded in the mid-1990s to its current size. While remaining an important historical living education center, the square also hosts numerous festivals as a vibrant element of the city’s arts and cultural scene.

Images of America: Historic Heritage Square honors the historical urban park by documenting its growth over time through a collection of vintage images. By displaying scenes from the past, the book hopes that modern readers will better understand and appreciate the importance of Heritage Square.
