A small exhibit showcasing artefacts found during the restoration of Roedde House is now on display in the Parlour. Roedde House received heritage designation in 1976, and in 1984 the Roedde House Preservation Society began restoration of the interior. During the restoration, many layers of history were uncovered and these findings are currently on display; from a dog’s tooth found in the backyard, to original wallpaper scraps and other odds and ends which had remained hidden over the years. Photos of the restoration process are also on display, as well as images of the house in past decades.
