The Cottage House Museum


The Marguerite Rogers House Museum, built by John G. Slover in the early 1900's, is located at 113 East Dumble in Alvin, Texas. In 1938 James A. and Marguerite Rogers bought the house.

Opening Ceremonies

A part of Alvin's history came to life on Saturday, March 29, 2003, when the Marguerite Rogers House Museum officially opened with ribbon cutting ceremonies. Bill Aulie, chairman of the Steering Committee for Restoration, along with committee members, Pat Klopp, Dwight Rhodes, Paul Doggett, Jean Vance, Jo Wiginton and Karen Pugh, spent many hours and much hard work over 5 years in restoring "the cottage" as it is affectionately called.

On hand for the dedication and opening were the Mayor of Alvin and council Members who were instrumental in allocating funds for the restoration project. Visitors may tour the property on Thursdays and Fridays and the first Saturday of each month from 11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
