Welcome

RoeddeHouse

 

Welcome to the Roedde family’s home. Gustav and Matilda Roedde settled in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1888. He became Vancouver’s first bookbinder while working for the Vancouver News Advertiser. In 1890 Gustav opened his own bookbinding business as G.A Roedde Bookbinders and by 1893 was successful enough to afford to build a house in the new West End neighbourhood. Roedde House, design attributed to famed architect Francis Rattenbury, is a City of Vancouver-designated Class A Heritage House.

Since 1990, the Roedde House Preservation Society has taken painstaking care to restore and furnish the house to reflect the ambience of late Victorian family life. Feel free to walk into every room; you will even be invited to touch some artifacts. Come in and experience life in the late 19th century for yourself.

While in the neighbourhood, stroll through the peaceful, leafy Barclay Heritage Square, sit in the gazebo or on one of the many benches, and take in the sights of Roedde House and its neighbours, such as Barclay Manor and the Diamond Centre (1895).

Current Exhibit: Canada, Your Prints Are Ready!

The exhibition will feature a diverse collection of original photographs which were gathered over the past 5 years from antique stores, estate sales, flea markets, garage sales and various sources. Many were misplaced, forgotten, unwanted, or never picked up, in other words "fallen through the cracks".

Lost, but now found and reunited, most are unique and have never been seen by the public. Original photos by many recognized Canadians including Gowan, Frank, Spalding, Harmon, Devine, Notman, Macatskill, Karsh and Foncie. Curated by Peter Richard Lowery.
