  • The Rosson House at Heritage Square is a charming venue for your wedding and all occasions. It has a historic value that everyone can appreciate. You can plan your dream wedding directly in front of the Rosson House for the making of an enchanting ceremony and memorable experience. Directly next door is the Lath House Pavilion, perfect for receptions, intimate and extravagant. There are also dressing rooms available for the bride/bridesmaids and groom/groomsmen. Heritage Square is centrally located, and there is a parking structure for your guest convenience. This is a wonderful venue with much character that will be remembered and dazzle your guest.
  • Cool tour through the house. Some people may not know this, but this house was built by the Rosson family but they never actually lived in it. They rented out and eventually sold it to another family. Check it out worth a look.
