Roeder Home is one of Whatcom County's most unique structures, recognized on the prestigious National Register of Historic Places. Built in 1909 by the area's leading citizen, this handsome building was home to just two families before the house and grounds became a county park in 1971.
Whatcom County Parks & Recreation has lovingly cared for the house that features quarter-sawn oak trim, pastoral murals, and period fixtures and furnishings. In 2012 the home's exterior was repainted and the oak floors refinished. We also began a partnership with WSU Master Gardeners to help restore the historic landscape and grounds, and to conduct clinics about urban heritage gardening. Other community groups use Roeder Home for concerts, presentations, and receptions.
The house and grounds are also available to rent for private functions like weddings, receptions, business and club meetings.
