Welcome to the Roedde family’s home. Gustav and Matilda Roedde settled in Vancouver, British Columbia in 1888, and Gustav became Vancouver’s first bookbinder while working for the Vancouver News Advertiser. In 1890 he 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 ambiance of late Victorian family life. Feel free to walk into every room; you will even be invited to touch some artefacts. 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).
