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. The Rogers' daughter, Emaline, bequeathed the property to the Alvin Museum Society in 1995. The Society restored the home and named it Marguerite Rogers House Museum, in honor of Emaline's mother.

Cottage Resumes Tour Schedule

Alvin escaped the wrath of Hurricane Rita last week. We sustained minimal damage and discomfort as a result of the storm. However, much of East Texas was destroyed and people devasted and left without the bare essentials of life. Our thoughts are with all of them as they rebuild their communities and lives.

The Cottage had no structural damage just some shrubery and debris on the grounds from the high winds. Regular tour schedule has resumed.
