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.

Final Plans for Garden Tour

Final plans are being made for the 10th Annual Alvin Area Garden Tour set for Saturday, April 18. Three private Alvin gardens featured on the tour will be those of Troy and Pam Lewis on Towne Court, Terry and Jody Droege on Towne Court and Joel Trevino and Yvette Melchor on West Larkspur in Hillcrest Village.

Hurricane Ike repairs are being done on the Victorian cottage, so the inside of the house will not be part of the Garden Tour this year. However, the tour will include the cottage grounds and the popular plant sale in the garage of the cottage.

Advance $5.00 tickets are available during business hours at Alvin's Guaranty Bank drive-thru windows, Alvin-Manvel Area Chamber of Commerce, Alvin Historical Museum on Sealy Street and the Marguerite Rogers Cottage House Museum on Dumble Street. Tickets will be available at each site on event day. For more information call 281-393-1538.
