History

The Rubi House was built for Owen Rouse and his family when Arizona was still a territory. Owen was an attorney that went on to serve as a Missouri senator before settling in Arizona in 1885. He then served as an Arizona territorial district attorney and associate justice of the U.S. district court. Both positions were appointed by President Grover Cleveland. The home was later owned and renovated by Pete Rubi, a Prima County Supervisor and Justice of the Peace. After Pete passed, the home was purchased by Tom and Susan Cassidy, who continued renovations and converted it into an art gallery. The property was recently acquired by brothers, Colin Reilly and Rob Reilly, who are eager to share this property for your special occasion.

    Nothing else like it. The perfect choice. Absolutely memorable.

    We had THE BEST celebration at The Rubi when our son graduated from the UofA. We needed a place that would accommodate out of town family and a place to hold a party. The Rubi was THE PERFECT CHOICE as it provided both and so much more!

    It ended up being a family retreat-like weekend that was ABSOLUTELY MEMORABLE for all. Having the entire property for the weekend allowed us time to enjoy the historic home while visiting and catching up with one another. Beautiful and comfortable accommodations along with a quick and easy Uber ride to the UofA for the ceremony provided the ability for an unrushed set up for our event after.

    Guests at the Open House that evening raved about the venue and what fun it was. Being
    able to host the exact type of event that fit our family's personality (and our budget) rather than having to use a specific caterer allowed us to personalize the event. We opted to have handmade wood-fired pizzas done on the spot accompanied by some offerings from other local favorite college hangouts rather than typical banquet food. And being able to bring our own alcohol featuring beer from a local brewery was a major savings.

    After the party, several in our group had time to explore the downtown scene while others “crashed” giving us time to finish cleaning up in the morning instead of having to meet a deadline to be off the premises by a certain time that evening.

    I hope to be able to host a wedding for one of our kids here some day. Having the wedding party be able to stay together in the house as well as making it easy and affordable to host an event AND offer pre- and
    post-wedding festivities all in the same place would be ideal.

    Thank you for your vision to make The Rubi into a place to be enjoyed by many rather than keeping it exclusively to yourself. Tucson is fortunate to have this available.

    Thank you from our entire family!
