What does Phoenix and chewing gum have in common? Wrigley! The chewing gum magnate built the famous Phoenix landmark in 1932, on a 100-foot knoll that commands excellent views to this day. The mansion, which combines the best of Spanish, Monterey and Mediterranean architecture, presents a bygone age when elegance and style meant something very different than they mean today.
Purchased in 1992 by Geordie Hormel, the Wrigley Mansion was restored by it’s owner to it’s former glory and saw the addition of the first class restaurant that bears his name.
Tours are run two times a day, Tuesday through Saturday. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner. A sample of their menu can be viewed on the Wrigley Mansion website (see below). It’s well worth considering a tour followed by lunch at probably the only place in the state where you set the price. At Geordie’s guests are asked to pay what they think is reasonable for their lunch!
