Soak in the views at this hilltop mansion in Pheonix.
The Wrigley Mansion was built in 1932 on a hilltop with scenic 360-degree views. William Wrigley Jr. carefully designed the mansion and then had it built for his wife of 50 years, Ada. The home's architecture has a blend of Spanish, California Monterey, and Mediterranean styles. The Wrigley family owned a tile factory on Catalina Island and shipped the tile needed over to Phoenix. It was carried up the hill to the construction site by a donkey. The mansion and property were sold by the Wrigley family in 1973.
Over the years, the home was sold several times and by 1992, the city of Phoenix had decided to tear it down and build condos in its place. Around that time, Geordie and Jamie Hormel fell in love with it and bought the mansion instead. The couple has since done renovations and made it a public space. It is a premier fine dining and special event venue with a restaurant and lounge, wine bar, and more. Wrigley Mansion offers guided tours of the property, lunch, dinner, Sunday brunch, afternoon tea, and happy hour.
