Roedde House - Vancouver
Activity:A glimpse of Vancouver's past...Roedde House is a restored late-Victorian home, in the heart of Vancouver's "West End". The Roedde House offers guided tours for individuals or groups, public programs (such as concert and lecture series), and school tours.
Roedde house was built for Gustav and Mathilda Roedde in 1893. Its design is attributed to the early B.C. architect Francis M. Rattenbury, notable for the Legislative Buildings and the Empress Hotel in Victoria. The style of the house is "Queen Anne revival", notable for its cupola, bay windows, upstairs porch, and downstairs verandah.
Details:Roedde House is located at 1415 Barclay Street in Barclay Heritage Square (bounded by Barclay, Nicola, Haro and Broughton Streets), a unique parksite that includes nine historic houses dating from 1890 to 1908, retained in their original settings.
The square, conveniently situated midway between the downtown core and Stanley Park, is a pleasant 6-block walk from Granville and Robson Streets.
