Almost Live: Historic Roedde House

Sunday, October 25, 2020 at 1:30 pm Pacific Time via Zoom

Join us for a virtual tour of Vancouver’s historic Roedde House Museum with special guest Cindy Gustin.

A hidden gem located in the heart of downtown Vancouver’s West End, this 2-storey home was built in 1893 for Gustav Roedde, one of Vancouver’s first bookbinders, and his family. Designed by famed architect Francis Rattenbury, the house has been fully restored and furnished to reflect the ambience of late Victorian family life. This virtual tour will include a slide show with description and commentary by one of the museum’s docents, Cindy Gustin.
