Slocum House



This lovely house is the only building remaining in what was a residential section of old Vancouver. The house was built by Charles W. Slocum and his wife Laura. This asymmetric house has many tall vertical features of the Italianate style. The house has an octagonal projection in one corner, an octagonal cupola, a veranda around half of its perimeter, and an ornate handrail around a “widow’s walk” on the roof. In 1966, the house was moved one block from its original site in order to save it from destruction.
