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 Update

The Cottage House Museum received some damage from Hurricane Ike. The wooden fence was blown down and we have some minor leaks in the roof. Closed during the month of September, The Cottage is open for tours. Although a Fall Exhibit was not planned, The Cottage is a "cozy" place to visit during the holiday season. Plan to come for a visit.

The Cottage is open on Thursdays, Fridays and the first Saturday of the month. We will close Friday, December 19, for the holidays and reopen after the first of the new year. We are working on a Spring Exhibit and will keep you posted.
