Rose Tree Museum

Southern Arizona

Every spring the world's largest rosebush – planted in 1885 – puts on an intoxicating show in the courtyard of this museum, a beautifully restored Victorian home still owned by the Robertson-Macia family. The inside is brimming with family and town memorabilia, including a 1960 photograph showing the matriarch with Robert Geronimo, son of the Apache chief.
