Goldfield Ghost Town

On the east flank of the Valley of the Sun is the old mining town of Goldfield, where you can take a day trip back to the Old West. The city was established in 1893 when gold was discovered in the surrounding Superstition Mountains, which look like a backdrop from a John Ford western. It wasn’t long before the gold vein was faulted, and Goldfield slipped into a slow death. See here for information about Phoenix, AZ Is Full of Museums.

Rosson House Museum

This elegant Queen Anne style Victorian house on Heritage Square is an early example of a building constructed in Phoenix with fired bricks rather than adobe. Rosson House dated to 1895 and was built for physician and surgeon Dr. Roland Rosson and designed by San Francisco architect A.P. Petit.

Wrigley Mansion

The chewing gum industrialist and owner of the Arizona Biltmore Hotel, William Wrigley Jr. (1861-1932), ordered this labyrinthine Italianate mansion just south of Piestewa Peak. The villa, now an event and fine dining venue, is lauded for its tile-work, produced at Wrigley’s tile factory on Catalina Island off the coast of California and then carried hundreds of miles by mule.
